Re: The Connection Between WTC and Cortlandt St

While all of the routes you mentioned, would go to new areas, none give route insurance.
These junctions do just that.
They either allow for a continuance to the original terminal and a return to the original route, however big or small. If not a continuance, at least service close to the original route affected.

Your extensions are just that, or new lines. Like the "new" Second Avenue Line, 70 years in the making. Hows that working for you?

Its kind of like comparing Apples and oranges. You have your preferences, I have mine. But our preferences DON'T make the others Stupid or worthless.

The Christy Street connector, The Essex/6th Ave connector, and the 21St Street / Northern Blvd Connector had a drastic impact on service, and hold great potential, in the event of problems elsewhere.
