Re: One Big Loop d'Loop (Change of Plans)

Dude..in NEW YORK..ANYTHING is possible..

In a negative way too. You have to admit.
How long is it taking to build a short Second Ave. subway?
You can't do it without the necessary money.

The eastern half of Tokyo's central area is on landfill.
Some of which are on garbage landfill (and I would personally never want to live there).
There are no places on earth other than the Greater Tokyo area where river flows were so altered by human force in the 18th to 20th century, with only the Netherlands following far behind. (Sort of what was done in the Marble Hill area but in a much grandiose scale)

I love all the cities I lived or commuted to in my life, which are Paris, Tokyo, London and New York but sometimes you've got to face reality over your fantasies, hopes and illusions.

The land can be acquired to build the brooklyn connector.

Now? It's 2012, in case you haven't noticed.

if someone cooks you a shitty meal and there are no other options..then your gonna eat that shitty meal to get FULL.

You don't call that a failure?

im too old for fantasies..everything i set out to do in my life i managed to accomplish through hard work,perseverance,and a good portion of elbow grease.

Its that "can do" attitude that I find this city [new york] lacks..driving home the SAS issue..
its NOT that it taking so long..its greed thats slowing down the construction..
the longer they work on this SMALL SEGMENT..the longer the contractor makes money..not through the contract itself...but through the side money being made.the longer they have a job..the longer it takes..the longer the workers have a job to go to.
another issue is "the people" whining about everything from the dust to a piece of paper on the sidewalk...they never wanted the subway..

with the right mind set..NY can build whatever it needs..once the bullshit is out of the equation.

In the G's case, it's more like the quality of that meal got even more shitty when the restaurant changed personnel. The G/GG was much more of a crosstown train before it got cut back to Court Square 24/7. Now, it's a glorified Brooklyn shuttle train with a couple stops in Queens.

So did I. But that was back in the 90s, when the G ran to/from Forest Hills on weekdays. It was much easier to make connections (subway and bus) to/from the G back then.

The same overcrowded E, L and 7 trains and SRO M train that already have enough trouble dealing with their current ridership?

The G doesn't necesssarily HAVE to be a direct link between Brooklyn and Queens, especially now that everyone who wants to go further than Court Square MUST transfer.

whatever the G is now..it suits US and the region it travels through just fine.
As long as I can get a train within a reasonable time frame..can travel in relative comfort..then I'm happy.
the service seems to run much better without being on Queens Blvd..
