LOL Rat Dispensers
 
2012-12-13 09:57:52 AM  
For some reason the phrase "rat dispensers" has me chuckling quietly to myself every few minutes.... the other part of my brain is working out the engineering of a rat dispenser - both "live" and "terriyake flavored" versons.

The 7 needs to be extended. Really?

Needed:

~ An Upper East/West side shuttle

~ Line into LaGuardia

~ Line connecting Bronx/Queens (megatunnel!!); connects to a cross-Bronx line

Also get cracking on the Oyster Bay/Rye chunnel. And where are my damn hovercrafts!

I heard that the plan is to eventually extend the 7 all the way into Hoboken. Don't ask for sources, I don't remember.

The 7 runs across 42nd from GCS to Times Square. Extending that line to Jersey would put it in Weehawkin. What am I missing?

Not even open yet, and there's already some graffiti?

I think it hooks south at some point. Maybe hooks up with PATH tunnels?

I believe extending the 7 line to Javits Center was part of the deal to sell off the land that MTA owned at the Hudson Yards.

All the other suggestions are unbelievably expensive. I'm not sure how the UWS/UES train would even pass all the environmental laws (Digging a tunnel under Central Park would be a large fight)


The sad thing is that while the MTA does get blamed for all the subway woes. The issues run way deeper, and the fact that the state has drastically reduced funding over the decades has been quite painful. The subway desperately needs to be upgraded and the current funding structure will not allow it to happen.

And for the "2 Books/MTA is so corrupt" crowd. Yes, there are issues, but they are among the most transparent government agencies as all costs are available online.

rocinante721: ~ Line into LaGuardia


No. I do not want to do anything that encourages the survival of that wretched airport. The only thing LGA does well is follow the words "Well at least it's not as bad as".

Due to the recent hurricane, your hovercraft is full of eels.
