According to my 1975 Geographia: Only the M10 and M104 used Broadway between 59th and 42nd St. The M10 turned onto 7th Ave to go further downtown and the M104 turned east to First Ave.
The M6 and M7, the two routes that used Broadway below 42nd St, used 7th Ave to go between 59th and 42nd St.
It's difficult for me to see why Bway below 59th is "valuable." There wasn't a continuous route along it.
If you do want a continuous route down Bway, use the Citibike station at 58th St.
Much of 2nd Ave. has 1 lane less than it used to - slowing down traffic considerably.
Can you be still more specific? The full width of 2nd Ave remains intact at its two busiest sections: the Queensboro Bridge and the Midtown Tunnel. 2nd Ave has been a traffic mess thanks to both the SAS and 3rd water tunnel construction.
