Agreed.

What's more is that the need got much worse after the el was torn down. Before Third Avenue was lined with six story buildings. After it was demolished, probably around half those buildings were torn down and replaced with skyscrapers (just like on Water Street) all in anticipation of the Second Avenue Subway. If no subway plans were announced, some of those buildings would have been replaced anyway, but they would never have been that tall, and there wouldn't so many of them.
