"How it should have been a stipulation that was tear down the el only after the SAS opened."

History repeated itself in the late 1970's when the City was planning to build the Archer Avenue line. The Jamaica El east of 121st Street was closed in the mid '70s and demolished by 1980 in anticipation of being replaced by the Archer Avenue line. Unfortunately, it took until 1988 to open that line and it was an inadequate replacement, as it only went as far as Parsons Boulevard whereas the Jamaica El went to 168th Street.
