I don't mean waste of money in the true sense of the word, I mean it in such that it's a shame that they wound up spending that for nothing. I know the real reasons they did, and I know the reasons that it was eventually replaced with the subway, but in a perfect world where you can see the future, imagine if they had spent that money instead on sending the terminal further than Lefferts, or some other expansion. That was a long stretch of el that had perfectly good dual contract el structure, between Franklin and Atlantic, identical in construction to the Broadway El, and was only used for about 25 years.
