Re: Full Shutdown of L Train to Be Halted by Cuomo

I have to agree with you here. With no disrespect at all (and I mean that) towards any other poster, I think what's gone on is that we're all so used to bashing Cuomo (and there's a lot to criticize about him), that we view anything he does through a bad lens.

But in this case, if the new plan is sound, it should go ahead, despite the costs already sunk into the full shut down. The full shut down would have been enormously disruptive- not only to the subway and to street traffic, but to peoples' lives on both sides of the East River. even Manhattanites who don't use the L would've been very seriously inconvenienced by spillover effects- like people jamming alternate routes and all the extra buses on the street.

So- yes, if there is a practical way to avoid the shutdown, it should be attempted. It would be almost irresponsible not to try.
