Re: Tuscarora Almanac for June 8

I was thinking the same thing. Had the Fulton el been completely rebuilt east of Nostrand, there would have been a number of possibilities. The Ind could have been connected to the Fulton el at Nostrand where the Fulton el had been rebuilt to dual contract standards or at the approximate location of the Bway/ENY (now Bway Jct) station of the IND. since the current Fulton St subway infrastructure curves slightly north under Truxton Pk a portal could have been built in the area connecting the IND to the Fulton St el at that point. Actually, there were a couple of other variations of the extension of the IND east of Rockaway Ave. One was to have the IND continue under Fulton St and under the Jamaica Line el structure to a point a bit east of Crescent St where it would have emerged onto a structure and connected to the Liberty Av el structure around the same place it does now. Another would have had the IND turn east along Liberty Ave and connect directly to the Fulton St el structure at Crescent St which would have required of course the upgrading of that portion of the el to dual contract standards. I suspect that the present routing was decided on since it pretty much duplicated the exact routing of the Fulton St el with a slightly smoother connection to Liberty Av as well as affording an additional route east into S/E Queens although that line was never built.
