Ep. 18 of ‘The Next Stop Is…’ on the 7 line extension, Vignelli and ferries

By

NextStopis We’re back with an all-new episode of “The Next Stop Is…,” the only Second Ave. Sagas’ podcast around. Eric and I talked today about delays, strikes, and ferries. Oh my?

We start with a discussion on the 7 train extension’s recent troubles and what it may mean for other MTA capital projects. We talked about the LIRR union’s offer to postpone a strike from July to September and delved once more into the love affair with ferries. We ended with some words on the sad passing of Massimo Vignelli.

This week’s episode runs about 20 minutes, and if you haven’t left work for the day, give it a listen on your ride home. (But don’t worry; it will still be timely in the morning.) You can grab the podcast right here on iTunes or pull the raw MP3 file. If you enjoy what you hear, subscribe to updates on iTunes as well and consider leaving us a review. If you have any issues you’d like us to tackle when we return in two weeks, leave ’em in the comments below.

    Please address the rat problem. I use the #1 train at 14th street every day and number of rats is mind boggling. It is also one of the filithest stations in the system. Love your blog, never miss it. ALways recommend to friends and family.
    Best regards,

    MP3 link is broken. It ends with “.mp33” instead of “.mp3”.

    I kind of always thought you were too tough on the ferries. Although I had never taken the ferry. I took the East River ferry for the first time yesterday and I was not impressed. It was confusing, there was no one to ask for help, it was slow. Its a better view than from the train, but that’s about it. You can keep being tough on ferries. (But you’re still too tough on everyone else, :-p )
