After close to a century of planning the first section of the Second Avenue Subway will open on January 1, 2017 adding three new stations to the NYC Subway. It's the first segment in a line that will eventually run almost the entire length of Manhattan. It's expected to carry 200,000 people daily upon opening.

Any NYC Anons/railfans/foamers planning to check things out?

I'm glad for NYC but 3 new stations is such a pathetic expansion, seriously.

We are lucky to get that. The Second Avenue subway was talked about in the 1920s. They took down all the els in Manhattan when they should have kept them.

Specifically either the Second or Third Avenue El's. Either (or both) would have relieved future congestion from the Lexington Avenue Line like as have now.

Destroying the EL's was dumb decision by both the city, and NYCTA.

Let's also not forget how they were gunning to tear down Grand Central as well.

It's only phase 1. It won't actually be done for decades.

I lived on 2nd avenue for a while this summer, would have been useful as the 2nd avenue SBS is a bit of a wank.

I think the fact that there are no express tracks, and the fact that the T train won't go to the bronx or brooklyn is limiting its usefulness. I mean the East River is like what, a 10 minute walk from most parts of the Lexington Avenue line? Living on 2nd avenue and commuting everywhere using the Lex was convenient because the walk to 86th was quick and there was always a 4 or 5 to catch within 1-5 minutes.

The streetscape around the planned stations on 2nd avenue is pretty fucked and business owners have apparently lost a lot of money because of the construction scaring off pedestrians.
