Big Plan Needed
The New York Times did a story on the need for the City and State to invest maybe $100 billion into the subway system. The story points out that the subway is basically why New York became one of the world’s great cities. For too long, the MTA has applied Band-Aids when full-scale operations were needed. Other countries and other cities are building and rebuilding their systems, which will leave New York in the dust. It’s been too easy for too long to kick things down the road. Governor Cuomo (who is really the one in charge) must spearhead a comprehensive plan for the overhaul of the New York subway system. Yes, the Rockaway Branch Line should be activated but that should just be one item in a complete, transformative modernization of the entire system. There is no time to waste.
