In this Column, I will Concentrate on the # 2 & # 3 Trains in New York County (Manhattan). The # 3 Train First & Last Stop is Harlem-148th Street. I would Change it to Mother Carla Hale-148th Street, The Next Stop is 145th Street. I would Change it to East Manhattanville-145th Street. The Next Stop is 135th Street, which is where the # 2 Train from Bronx County (Bronx) joins the # 3 Train. This is the LAST STOP for the # 2 Train before going to Bronx County (Bronx). I would change it to Northeast Harlem-135th Street. The Next Stop is 125th Street which I would change to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. The Next Stop is 116th Street which I would change to Malcom X Harlem Market-116th Street. The Next Stop is Central Park North-110th Street…Read more >
The # 1 Train travels between South Ferry in Downtown New York County (Manhattan) to Van Cortlandt Park-242nd Street in Bronx County (Bronx). The # 1 Train is the 7th Avenue Local South of 45th Street & is the Broadway Local North of 45th Street. I have a Number of Proposals for the # 1 Train Subway Line.
South Ferry is where You Transfer to the Staten Island Ferry. The Next Stop is Rector Street. I am Sure We ALL Remember what Happened on September 11th 2001. Terrorists Slamed Planes into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center & Ultimately, The Twin Towers Collasped. Unfortunately, 1 of the MANY Casualties of that day was the Damage to the # 1 Train Cortlandt Street Station. That was September 11th 2001. Of Course the Station had to be …Read more >
The Port Jefferson Branch includes the following Stations: New Hyde Park, Merillon Avenue, Mineola, Carle Place, Westbury, Hicksville, Syosset, Cold Spring Harbor, Huntington, Greenlawn, Northport, Kings Park, Smithtown, St. Jmaes, Stony Brook & Port Jefferson, Tansfer @ Huntington for Service to/from Port Jefferson or to/from Jamaica/Atlantic Terminal-Barclays/Penn Station.

The Ronkonkoma Branch includes the Following stops: Mineola, Hicksville, Bethpage, Farmingdale, Pinelawn, Wyandanch, Deer Park, Brentwood, Central Islip & Ronkonkoma. Transfer A Ronkonkoma for the Train to Medford, Yaphank, Riverhead, Mattituck, Southold & Greenport. The Ronkonkoma Line is known as the Main LIne because when the Long Island Rail Road first Started, The Ronkonkoma-Greenport Branch was the Original Branch Line. When the Long Island Rail Road FIRST Started, It was supposed to be take the Train from Penn Station to Greenport & then Transfer for the Ferry to Boston. Since the Train-Ferry Schedules never coordinated with each other, The Decision was made to Forget Boston & to concentrate on Long Island. That is How the Long Isla…Read more >
The Oyster Bay Branch of the Long Island Rail Road includes the Following Stations: Mineola, East Williston, Albertson, Roslyn, Greenvale, Glean Head, Sea Cliff, Glen Street, Glen Cove, Locust Valley & Oyster Bay. Mill Neck is NO LONGER a Station/Stop on the Oyster Bay Branch.
Currently, Trains Operate between Jamaica & Oyster Bay. It is ONLY During the Morning & Evening Rush that You have Service to/from Hunterspoint Avenue or Long Island City or Penn Station. I Would NOT CHANGE ANYTHING DURING the Morning & Evening Rush. The Only Thing I might do is ADD Service if the Ridership went up.
I WOULD Like to see 24/7 Service between Long Island City/Hunterspoint Avenue & Oyster Bay. In Order for that to Happen, Ridership would need to increase.… Read more >
