Re: Reopening old underpasses - Atlantic Av IRT
I heard about your post via NoLandGrab.org, and did indeed sign up in order to respond.
Now that I've signed up, though, I'll come here every day.
Just to be clear, it's always initial good news when old subway infrastructure can once again see the light.
New York's subway system, disfunctional as it can be, is an absolute treasure. It should be maintained and caressed, but sadly, the funding isn't there for that. Never mind restoration, how about simple maintenance?
I'm sorry the MTA has thrown its lot in with Ratner -- they've lost hundreds of millions of dollars by grating FCR -- or now, FCE -- rights to develop the Vanderbilt Yards rather than a competing bid that was initially worth three times as much.
At any rate, here I am.
