If you are talking about Court St, that might be a problem although Iím sure with a TBM, it could be accomplished with a minimum of inconvenience to the residents. If the line had been extended west to connect with some Manhattan line at the time the subway was first constructed, the city would merely have condemned the buildings in the way and through routed Schermerhorn St the way it did with 6 Av in Manhattan and Pitkin with Old South Rd in Queens. Had the Utica/Stuyvesant subway been completed, it would be safe to assume that S 4 St which ended at Union Ave would have been through routed in the same way by demolishing all the buildings in the path of the new subway. One of the reasons that Hoyt/Schermerhorn was able to be constructed as it was is because it was done during the depression and there were either empty lots over the station location or any buildings that might have been in the way were able to be condemned and demolished for the construction due to it being during the depression.
