The Second Avenue Subway should be built by the "cut-and-cover" method.

The fourth phase to downtown should also be built.

Cut and cover was a great method to build back 100+years ago. Today there is too much infrastructure directly under the streets of NYC to use the cut and cover method. 100+ years ago this was not a problem
