    The last major subway project of course was the 63rd St. tunnel started around 1970 with different stages finished at different times and put in service. It would be nice if they’d do the same with 2nd Ave Subway, i.e. terminate now at 96th street as originally planned instead of digging for another 20 years to get to 125th. Second Ave. in front of Metropolitan Hospital has been torn up with the same excavation for over 12 years – I don’t know haw they do it. – now with open 30-or-so foot hole with new pipes at the bottom open to the elements. I guarantee if Prendergast gets his $15,000,000,000 it will do nothing to get to 125th any time sooner.
