Trump is not going to give NYC any significant money on transportation unless NYC's Congressmen vote for the border wall.

They need to suspend this, and any other subway capital projects until they get the signal system replaced. Anything else is rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic.

LA is looking for similar money for phase 3 of the purple line. It was funny to see our mayor and other elected officials rail on trump during the election and then try to make amends afterwards. They’re expecting federal money to be announced this summer. We will see.

I'll be dead by the time this is built so I'd prefer they fix the system with the money then build a lousy 3 stops

I doubt those wealthy people living in the UES want those folks living in East Harlem to have first dibs on the seats during rush hours when they'll be used to having empty trains.

Never mind the homeless people and junkies who'll be coming downtown...

those folks in east harlem will be moved to the poconos because their rents will increase from extension. Junkies will die. Homeless will be beaten by the cops. They won't allow money to get hurt

Yes. This gentrifies East Harlem. Phase one already gentrified Yorktown, which was full of ****ty old prewar walkup tenement housing. Now a lot more tall modern buildings have been built.

All of home have buses and the Lexington Avenue line to go downtown. The MTA will ultimately build the full length of the Second Avenue Subway, all the way downtown with provisions to the Bronx and Brooklyn.

Building it was never just about the UES.
