Re: Question About 7th Avenue - 53rd Street Station

And, similarly to today's M (Metropolitan Ave and 71-Continental) are 3 miles apart) , the E's Queens terminals weren't that far from one another. My 1967 Chrystie map shows some E trains going to Lefferts- practically a stone's throw from Hillside Avenue.

Now, if they ran the E from Parsons/Archer to Lefferts, that would be remarkable.

Another remarkable thing about the 1956-76 E was that in terms of distance, more than 50% of its route was the rush hour extension. Assuming the M resumes its normal pattern after the L job is done, that will be almost the same- the weekday extension is about 75% of the routes length. Prior to 2013, I'd say it was over 90%!
