The MTA adopted what Gothamist describes as "a tone of cautious optimism" regarding the perennially delayed Second Avenue Subway at a meeting this morning, announcing that the southern section of the long-awaited line is 82 percent complete, and the northern section, from 96th Street to 125th Street, might never happen because the MTA is out of money. But still, that southern section! 82 percent! That's pretty good, right? To break it down further, the Lexington Avenue/63rd Street station is 88 percent complete, the 72nd Street station is 56 percent complete, the 96th Street station is 67 percent complete, and the 86th Street station is "advancing. But not as quickly as we'd like to see it."
