Morning View - Advance Notice

The MTA is letting people on the 6 train know that overcrowding will be abated in a mere six years when the Second Avenue line begins to run. The city's most used line, daily ridership on the 6 train exceeds the daily ridership of the entire rail transit systems of San Francisco, Boston, and Chicago combined. However those of us on the UES are well aware that the Second Avenue line has been started and stopped several times going back to 1929. Every time there's a financial crisis, work halts for a couple decades or so. So we'll see. Anyway, if they ever do finish it, it may be the first line in NYC to have screened-off platforms to prevent people from throwing themselves under the train.
