Re: IND Second system

As far as the railroads and subways are concerned, as important as the work from home trend may be is the exodus to the suburbs, where regulation and expenses are less

That is the very latest thinking of 1980, when places like Westchester Avenue in White Plains started to get built up.

The trouble was that pretty soon you had widely distributed office buildings that weren't dense enough for rail, but dense enough to cause miserable traffic. See I-287 (pretty much its entire length from Rye to Perth Amboy). Back in 1981 I sometimes had to drive to Piscataway NJ and the traffic was bad then. From 1985 to 1990 I worked on Westchester Ave. and that traffic was terrible too.
