Yonkers almost WAS the sixth borough for real, and the subway would have extended up there. But, they decided against it in a referendum - bad move Yonkers!

Really? Was it that Westchester County was being considered as a sixth borough?

Not all of Westchester, but Yonkers & Mt. Vernon were allowed to participate in 1894 referendums (along with Kings, Queens, and Richmond counties) to determine whether they wanted to be part of the new proposed greater NYC. And..they both rejected the idea in their respective referendums. doh!

They also considered extending the 7 line to NJ not too long ago, but if I'm not mistaken, NJ wasn't interested while NYC was.
