Re: A Question about the Lower Montauk Branch?

It looks to me as though it could be reopened right away if needed. Maybe if Long Island City were connected to Hoboken or Lower Manhattan or Flatbush Avenue via Lower Manhattan. I know, I've just spent $10 billion just so we'd have an excuse to open a forsaken high-platform station.

But then again, they must have some reason for not having demolished it completely. Most other closed stations are either in ruins or gone without a trace. Take Springfield Gardens, for example-- all that is left is a space between the tracks where the island platform was. It makes me wonder if they expect to need it at some point for something.
