Now that I know a few more things on the topography of the area (proving what I read previously was wrong):

What probably would have been needed was to eliminate the island platforms and go with side platforms at all stops, perhaps with a crossover if need be above the stations (that way, you could do it similar to the Market-Frankford line stations, especially on the portion East/railroad North of 2nd Street in Philly towards Frankford where the 69th Street-bound side has fare control and you have to pay there and cross over to get to the Frankford-bound side). Then as noted, after Navy Street as I would do now, the line joins the Montague Line and likely today would be the (W) to Astoria. Such a line could also actually carry a loop line, running to/from the Nassau Line to/from Montague, Willy B and back to Metropolitan as well, doing so in both directions.
