Second Avenue Subway Is Probably Maybe Making Progress

New, 13 comments

Could it be? Actual progress on the Second Avenue Subway? The New York Post frames it as such, reporting that the MTA's perennially plagued new subway line is now more than 80 percent complete, but while that sounds good, the southern portion stretching from 63rd Street to 96th Street was reported as 82 percent complete all of a month ago. However far along the line is, it sounds like it'll be great if it ever opens. The new stations, at 72nd Street, 86th Street, and 96th Street, will have Wi-Fi and climate control technology that will keep the station about 10 degrees cooler than street level (only in the summer, hopefully). The stations' walls be covered in porcelain panels rather than tile because they're easier to keep clean, and the subway is the paragon of clean.
