Re: LIRR East Side Access / Roosevelt Island F Station

'what are the 2 IND stations that were put in AFTER the ind was built?'

'Do you mean before municipal takeover (1940)?'

Huh? Wasn't the IND always municipal? That was the whole point of it - Mayor Hylan wanted to have a city-owned subway to compete with 'the interests' (the IRT and BMT). That's why the IND lines were built in competition with IRT/BMT lines, rather than filling in the gaps to places not served by the IRT or BMT.
