Re: Other subway access / Roosevelt Island F Station

Posted by RonInBayside on Thu Jan 17 15:03:53 2008, in response to Re: LIRR East Side Access / Roosevelt Island F Station, posted by Roosevelt island 360 on Tue Oct 23 15:06:12 2007.

I sympathize and agree regarding F train conditions.

I disagree with the blogger, though in that gaining access to other subway lines should not be more difficult than the LIRR. More expensive, perhaps, because the LIRR access could be right from the current station. But I think creating an "in-fill station" on the Broadway Line (R train) would be very good, assuming the tunnel isn't at some incline under the island.

If you create a station on the 53rd St line, that would offer good access to the V and E train. I the peak direction, the E is a string of sardine tins, so forget getting on the train unless it's not rush hour. On the other hand, you could get from Roosevelt Island to Queens on the E, anti-peak direction.

It's worth discussing with MTA.
