Ep. 11 of ‘The Next Stop Is…’

by Benjamin Kabak

NextStopis It’s a new year, but it’s the same podcast. Welcome to the 11th episode of “The Next Stop Is…” the one and only audio version of Second Ave. Sagas.

While a lot has happened over the past few days — a Metro-North resignation, Chris Christie’s George Washington Bridge scandal — Eric and I recorded this episode on Sunday night. The discussion, however, is still timely. We talk about how even the promise of transit drives real estate prices issues with the environmental review process, and subway collision numbers for 2013. I also give my pick for the most important transit development of 2013. What is it? You’ll just have to listen.

This week’s recording again runs just under 25 minutes, and it is, as you may have guessed by now, the perfect length for your subway ride home this evening. 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.

Just finished listening to the episode and immidately thought of a map posted on Subchat showing the estimated locations of the unbuilt Lower East Side subway stations had the IND 2 been built.


The line from Second Ave station to the ‘Avenue B’ station and thence to the East River might be worth looking at as a short extension as far as the East River with provisions for future expansion.

Especially as about 550ft of the line already exist hidden behind a false wall.

For some reason the link was not working. Here it is without the html.

I’m often surprised that SAS is so high on a potential Nostrand Avenue subway extension. The ridership may be there but in the aftermath of Sandy, building through the heart of a large flood zone should make one second guess the usefulness of a project. Stick to Utica, which has the width to build out an elevated line, a desperate B46 ridership, and opportunity to make farther spaced stops than the IRT line already in existence. In the meantime, Boston is seriously thinking about new subway construction. Let us hope it brings some old plans to the outer boroughs back to the table.
