Re: Left Behind by the Nationís Largest Subway System

I don't think the word "enjoy" completely describes the situation. What these lines are doing is redistributing people away from already overloaded lines, or increasing access to other areas of the city which could use the attention. Doing either of these things allows for an increase in growth, because you're removing chokepoints and making it easier to create business centers away from already crowded Manhattan. True, it's not necessarily helping the people in the transit deserts, but then again, can the current trunk lines take the extra traffic from new extensions in these areas (assuming these areas want them in the first place. Has eastern Brooklyn been crying out for subway service in their areas?).
