Empire State happenings 2

NYC Regional Rail/A new station in Queens?

The first real crime is the fact that no one thought of connecting Hoboken to Lower Manhattan early last century when it didn't cost an arm and a leg. The second one is that no one in charge has even considered third primary NYC commuter station (sorry, 125th Street). The Sunnyside station could go a long way in relieving some congestion, and it won't cost as much money as the proposals to reroute selected LIRR trains to Grand Central.


The Second Avenue Subway's costs


This definitely goes in the "this is why America can't have nice things" department.



Reduced service for upstate residents


Bad news that matches everything else Iowa Pacific has gone through since the calendar changed.
