“The Second Avenue Subway (officially the IND Second Avenue Line; abbreviated to SAS) is a New York City Subway line that has been under discussion since the 1910s. It runs under Second Avenue on the East Side of Manhattan. The first phase of this new line opened on January 1, 2017, extending the Q train to 96th Street and Second Avenue, serving a projected 200,000 daily riders at four new stations. Some N trains provide additional service on the line during rush hours. Phase one runs between 96th Street and the 63rd Street Lines, connecting to the BMT Broadway Line and the rest of the subway system. The full Second Avenue Line, if and when funded, would be built in three additional phases, allowing portions to open before the entire line is completed. When completed, it would be served by a proposed T train between 125th Street and Hanover Square. The proposed full line would be 8.5 miles (13.7 km) long with 16 stations and a projected daily ridership of 560,000, costing more than $17 billion.

.

The line was originally proposed in 1919 as part of a massive expansion of what would become the Independent Subway System (IND). Work on the line never commenced, as the Great Depression crushed the economy. Numerous plans for the Second Avenue Subway appeared throughout the 20th century, but these were usually deferred due to lack of funds. The line was proposed to replace the Second Avenue and Third Avenue elevated lines; although the new subway was not built, the elevated lines were demolished in 1942 and 1955, respectively. This left the Lexington Avenue Subway as the only rapid transit line on much of Manhattan’s east side; today, it is by far the busiest subway line in the United States, with an estimated 1.3 million daily riders.

.

Construction on the Second Avenue Line started in 1972, but was halted in 1975 because of the city’s major fiscal crisis, with only a few short segments of the line having been completed at the time. Simultaneously, construction work on the 63rd Street Lines, which would connect the Second Avenue Line and the IND Queens Boulevard Line to the BMT Broadway Line and the IND Sixth Avenue Line, started in 1969. Work on the 63rd Street Lines continued even after construction on the Second Avenue line ended. The first segment of the 63rd Street Lineswhich opened in October 1989 and extended to 21st StreetQueensbridge in Long Island City, Queensleft provisions for future connections to the Second Avenue Line.

.

Work on the line restarted in 2007 following the development of a financially secure construction plan. The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) awarded a tunneling contract for the first phase of the project to the consortium of Schiavone/Shea/Skanska (S3) on March 20, 2007. This followed preliminary engineering and a final tunnel design completed by a joint venture between AECOM and Arup. Parsons Brinckerhoff is serving as the Construction Manager of the project. A full funding grant agreement with the Federal Transit Administration for the first phase of the project was received in November 2007. A ceremonial ground-breaking for the Second Avenue Subway was held on April 12, 2007. The first phase of the line consists of three newly-built stations and two miles (3.2 km) of tunnel, costing $4.45 billion.”

Second Avenue Subways Arrival Brings Fear That Rents Will Soar

By EMMA G. FITZSIMMONS

Few cities in the world are as closely linked to their subways as New York City  the vast network helped shape the city and now carries nearly six million people a day. So when the most ambitious expansion of the subway system in half a century opens on Sunday, it will be a transformative moment, promising to alter the future of a large slice of Manhattan.

.

The new Second Avenue subway will provide badly needed relief to one of New Yorks most congested transit corridors and is expected to be a boon to the local economy, making restaurants and stores suddenly easier to reach. But even as the city celebrates a line many doubted would ever open, its arrival has prompted fears that rising rents could force out longtime residents and shops  the kind of displacement that has swept through many other parts of an increasingly affluent New York and deepened its inequality.

.

People living near three new stations at 72nd, 86th and 96th Streets could face rent increases as high as $462 per month, according to a report by StreetEasy, a real estate website. Sleek high-rises are already popping up above the walk-up apartment buildings that have served as first homes for many New Yorkers.

.

snip

.

Once a German enclave where elevated trains ran above Second and Third Avenues, the Yorkville neighborhood on the Upper East Side is now home to millennials looking for a deal, families drawn by good schools and older people with limited budgets. Rowdy bars with beer pong games exist alongside hordes of strollers. On its eastern border sits the verdant but out-of-the way Carl Schurz Park and Gracie Mansion, the mayoral estate, whose current resident, Bill de Blasio, prefers to use chauffeured cars over the far-flung subway.

.

The elevated lines were razed in the 1940s and 1950s, to the delight of many residents who viewed them as noisy eyesores and expected a new subway line to open soon. Instead, the area became a rapid-transit desert, one of the few neighborhoods in Manhattan that the subway did not reach.

.

But this has also made the neighborhood relatively affordable by Manhattan standards. Yorkvilles median rent is about $2,700 per month, lower than Manhattans rate of about $3,300, according to StreetEasy, and there are clusters of rent-stabilized and rent-controlled apartments.

.

A real estate wave seemed forever around the corner as plans for the subway line were delayed again and again. Until now, residents have been forced to trek blocks to the nearest packed subway stops to board No.4, 5 and 6 trains on Lexington Avenue, the nations most-crowded subway line.

.

snip

.

Since the subway first opened in Manhattan in 1904 and expanded farther into the Bronx, Brooklyn and Queens, it has paved the way for development, and it propelled the citys soaring population in the first half of the 20th century. But in recent decades, the system has largely remained the same size, even as the citys population of 8.5 million is the highest ever and continues to climb.

.

snip

.

Across the United States, good transit access often leads to higher real estate prices, with home values near rapid transit in Boston, Chicago, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Phoenix and San Francisco far outpacing other properties during the last recession, according to a report by the American Public Transportation Association.

The Insanely Expensive Second Avenue Subway Explained

If You Build It

.

Phase 1 adds three entirely new stations to the subway system, at 72nd, 86th, 96thall along Second Avenue. The existing 63rd Street-Lexington Avenue Station, where the F runs, was also renovated so the new-and-improved Q train can stop there. There will be a cross-platform transfer between the Q and the F.

.

Two tunnels, one northbound and one southbound, were dug for Phase 1. Drilling of the northbound (west) tunnelwhich is 1.47-miles- or 7,789-feet-longtook approximately eight months. It was completed in February 2011. The southbound (east) tunnel, which at 1.36 miles, or 7,209 feet, is slightly shorter, was completed in September 2011. All told, the cost of the project works out to approximately $300,000 per foot tunneled.

.

A 450-foot long, 484-ton tunnel boring machine nicknamed “Adi” did the digging; it removed 15 million cubic feet of rock and 6 million cubic feet of soil. That’s enough to bury a football field 360 feet deep. Adi was later shipped to Indianapolis to be used for another tunneling project.

.

They Will Come

.

The MTA expects 200,000 people to use the Phase 1 line on an average weekday. For context, that’s more than half as many daily riders as the entire Los Angeles Metro system (350,000). So as expensive as the new project is, it’s a major improvement for the system. And compared to the monstrous Santiago Calatrava dino skeleton PATH Station, which cost $4 billion dollars and is serving around 50,000 riders a day, we could call it a steal.

.

.

What’s Next

.

If the entire SAS is built, it will feature a total of 15 new stations spread out over 8.5 miles. The line, which will ultimately get its own letter (T) and color (turquoise), would be the shortest complete line in the system. (We’re stuck with the Q until phase 3; the “T” only arrives when the line extends south to Houston.) Hopefully, we’ll see a complete line in our lifetime.

This New NYC Subway Map Shows the Second Avenue Line, So It Has to Really Be Happening

By Jen Kirby

May 26, 2016 1:15 p.m

New York Magazine

http://tinyurl.com/jtvn2n8

.

.

Its really there! The Second Avenue line is on this map, which was included in the MTAs board-meeting minutes on Wednesday. The Q train will be extended up through 63rd Street and shuttle riders to and from the Upper East Side through 96th Street. This is Phase 1 of the project, which is really, seriously, “the MTA said it, okay?” expected to be completed in December 2016. And if a geographically inaccurate map of New York City says it, it has to be true.

.

Second Avenue Sagas pointed out a little caveat to this good news: The MTA, which expects the extension to serve about 200,000 riders at first, doesnt really plan to increase the frequency of Q service, so rush-hour waits will be some of the longest across all subways. For example, during the morning rush, southbound trains (i.e., those originating at 96 Street) will run every eight minutes. Then again, its still probably faster than watching two or three 6 trains pass by before one arrives with enough space to squeeze on to.

A Brief History of the Second Avenue Subway Line

December 30, 2016

by Stephen Nessen

http://www.wnyc.org/story/brief-history-2nd-avenue-subway-line/

.

.

New York City is filled with colossal feats of engineering that often come with excruciating delays. While it was nearly a decade before ground zero was rebuilt. It took nearly a century, 14 mayors, 12 governors and dozens of transit leaders later to complete three new subway stops along Second Avenue that are expected to open to the public on January 1, 2017.

.

What took so long?

.

After World War I, the subways were more crowded than ever (and oh-so-briefly  profitable). This led to some grand schemes: there was to be a subway line for every major avenue, including under Second Avenue, from Houston Street to the Harlem River. It was estimated to cost $86 million dollars…but then the stock market crashed, and plans were put on hold.

.

There were efforts after World War II, but a wave of inflation deterred officials, who decided to spend money on maintaining the existing lines. The East Side had two elevated lines, along Second and Third Avenues, as well as the Lexington Avenue subway.  But by 1955 the El trains reached the end of the line, and were torn down.

.

Meanwhile, the Second Avenue subway met a powerful opponent in Robert Moses, who preferred highways to mass transit and thwarted efforts to build the new line in 1942 and again in 1954.

.

Hopes were rekindled in 1968, when the city received federal funding to expand its subways for the first time ever. A proposal for a Second Avenue line that went from 34th Street up to the Bronx was drawn up, and expected to cost $220 million.

New York City’s Second Avenue Subway is a wonderland of public art
Rush hour has never been so culturally enriching.

The New York Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) pleased modern architecture admirers while also supplying sharp-tongued critics with a generous helping of fodder earlier this year when it debuted Santiago Calatravas controversial and mega-costly World Trade Center transit hub. Now, starting Jan.1, the MTA is giving contemporary art buffs and straphangers alike something to take in and talk about at a quartet of subway stations  three of them new and one expanded  on Manhattans Upper East Side.

.

Together composing the first phase of the painfully long-awaited Second Avenue subway line, these four stations arent themselves works of art like Calatravas downtown transit hub, a soaring structure meant to evoke a bird in flight. However, the stations  63rd Street, 72nd Street, 86th Street and 96th Street  are stuffed to the gills with enough detour-worthy public art to establish them as bona fide cultural attractions.

.

Cultural attractions  certainly a term you dont frequently hear in direct reference to New York City Subway stations, even though more than a few boast eye-catching works of public art.

.

Essentially, you could regard the Second Avenue Subways art-adorned inaugural stations, heralded as the “largest permanent public art installation in New York history by Gov. Andrew Cuomo, as subterranean mini-museums. But unlike their non-MTA-operated aboveground counterparts, these museums will eventually also be home to pizza-lugging rats and a vast array of microbial life.

.

Each of the four stations, which are scheduled to be open to the public on Jan. 1 following considerable delay, is home to a major installation by a single esteemed artist: At 63rd Street is Elevated, a sprawling work in which Jean Shin brings to life archival photographs taken of and on Manhattans now-extinct elevated train lines with ceramic, glass and mosaic; the 72nd Street station is populated by Perfect Strangers, a photo-based mosaic installation by Brazilian-born, Brooklyn-based artist Vik Muniz; rendered in mosaic and ceramic tile, Subway Portraits is the latest from celebrity photorealist Chuck Close and can be found beneath the intersection of 86th Street and 2nd Avenue; lastly, Sarah Szes immersive Blueprint for a Landscape unfolds across the walls of the 96th Street station.

.

snip

.

While the installations at all four stations are remarkable in their own right, the Chuck Close installation at 86th Street will no doubt garner the most attention from out-of-towners and rubbernecking non-commuters considering that Close teeters into household name territory with his larger-than-life gridded portraits serving as crowd-drawing fixture at numerous major contemporary art museums across the world including New York’s own Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Whitney Museum of American Art. (The suggested/required adult admission price at both of these museums is $25 while a single ride on the subway costs $2.75).

2nd Avenue Subway

Legislation | Documents/Reports | Links | Press Releases

https://maloney.house.gov/issues/local-issues/2nd-avenue-subway

Building the Second Avenue Subway has been one of my top priorities since I was first elected to Congress. New York Citys subway system has not added capacity in over 60 years, and we need to expand. Passengers on the Lexington Avenue line have the dubious distinction of riding on the most overcrowded subway line in the entire nation. There is a limit to the number of people that can be crammed into one subway car, but the Lex line seems to have exceeded that limit. A Second Avenue Subway offers a much-needed alternative for commuters. The full length subway, which will run from 125th Street to lower Manhattan, will also reach underserved neighborhoods on the East Side.

.

One of two New Start projects in the city (the other, East Side Access, is also in my district), the Second Avenue Subway has been rated by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) as one of the best in the country. The former Administrator of the FTA, Jenna Dorn, told me that the best work she had ever seen submitted was the MTAs submission on the Second Avenue Subway.

.

The project is being divided into four phases. The first phase will create new tracks and tunnels from 99th Street to 63rd Street, with new stations at 96th, 86th and 72nd Street. The new line will then link onto existing underused Q train tracks and provide a one seat ride to lower Manhattan and Brooklyn. When completed, the Second Avenue Subway will move 202,000 people, more than any other New Start project in the nation. With strong support from the entire New York Congressional delegation and our two Senators, we broke ground for the subway in April 2007. The MTA completed construction of the two tunnels for the subway on September 22, 2011, five months ahead of the February 2012 expected completion date.  Construction is also well underway for the 96th Street, 86th Street, 72nd Street and 63rd Street entrances.

.

The first phase of the project will cost approximately $4.4 billion, and the lions share of the funding is already committed. On November 19, 2007, the FTA entered into a full funding grant agreement with the MTA, committing the federal government to provide $1.3 billion to construct the Second Avenue Subway, of which more than $900 million has already been appropriated.  The state is obligated to provide the remaining $3.1 billion. Thanks to the leadership of Speaker Sheldon Silver, New York State appropriated $1.05 billion in its 2000-2004 capital plan. In 2005, New York State voters approved another $450 million from the Transportation Bond Act. As a symbol of the support for the project, the East Side of Manhattan cast more votes in support of the Transportation Bond Act than any other area of the state. The remainder is expected to be allocated in the states 20102014 and 2015-2019 capital plans.
