Re: Doubling the subway fare in 1948

Some if the IND Second System was designed to compete with the existing lines of the privates in order to drive them out of business and once the city took them over, their money was now going into city coffers so there was no longer any need to spend money on duplicate projects. I have often mentioned that if the entire Fulton St el had been rebuilt to dual contract standards, the cit probably could have figured out a way to build a portal somewhere in the vicinity of downtown Bkln and connected the IND to it at that point instead of where it was done.
