Re: L West of 8th Avenue

Posted by Wallyhorse on Sun Jun 27 10:37:37 2010, in response to Re: Bedford Av (L) stop - going to get real worse, posted by #5 - Dyre Ave on Thu Jun 24 22:37:41 2010.

I have suggested 10th/Amsterdam Avenue myself for an extended L train that would include a peak-direction express on 10th avenue, with the following stops:

23rd Street (three tracks, two island platforms), can be used as a short-turn terminal, exits at 21st and 23rd streets.

33rd Street (local only on side platforms), exits at 31st and 33rd streets.

41st Street (three tracks, two island platforms), transfer to 7 if 10th Avenue station is built there, exits at 41st, 42nd and 43rd streets.

50th Street (local only on side platforms), exits at 48th and 50th streets.

57th Street (local only on side platforms), exits at 55th and 57th streets.

65th Street (local only on side platforms), exits at 64th, 65th and 66th streets.

72nd Street (three tracks, two island platforms), transfer to 1/2/3 and terminal for such a line, exits above the 1 platform at 72nd street/Broadway and a standalone exit at 75th Street.

The exits would be set up for eight-car trains, however, platforms would be for 10-12 cars in case the Eastern Division platforms are ever expanded.

If there were to be a later extension, I would be looking at these for additional stops:

86th Street (local only on side platforms), exits at 84th and 86th streets.

96th Street (three tracks, two island platforms), possible transfer to 1/2/3 via the now-closed underpass of the 96th-Broadway station, exits at 96th and 98th streets.

Cathedral Parkway (110th Street, local only on side platforms), exits at 108th and 110th streets.

116th Street-Columbia University (three tracks, two island platforms), possible terminal for the line and at least a short-turn terminal for peak-direction trains.
