Re: More count-down clock lunacy

I like the clocks as well. At first I saw some weird errors at Pacific Street, but it's been explained to me on here that that was because at the time, not all of the IND-BMT had the receivers, so a train could seem to come out of nowhere.

However, I do agree that many of them are very poorly placed. For example, at 8th St/NYU southbound, the clock is right in the middle of the platform (I assume it's bi-directional, but I haven't checked) , but the station can only be entered from the north or south ends. Therefore, I think there should be a clock set a few feet (maybe 15-20 feet) from the bottom of each stairway. This way, you can comfortably read it once you've descended, and people are incentivized not to stand right at the stairway landings...

At Whitehall St., Brooklyn-bound, they just need MORE of them. The platform is narrow, and gets crowded in the PM rush. Better placement would result in more people getting somewhat accurate information, and adjusting their plans accordingly.
