The Lexington Avenue Line
If you have ridden any of the above subway lines, you know how crowded those train cars can become in a hurry. In Manhattan along the Lexington Avenue/Park Avenue South lines, the crowding is so bad, some people are forced to wait for a train as much as a half hour, just to fit in, never mind the seat, fit in the train. Waiting to board the (4)(5) subway lines at Borough Hall in Brooklyn is like a disaster. Crowds of people wait to board, the R142 and R142A trains come and it's packed.
Passengers have to pack inside trains, just like these!
Those trains may not be crowded in the photos, but if you can imagine the crowds. There is one solution coming, and that is the Second Avenue Subway (T) line. It will run along 2nd Avenue in Manhattan. However it won't help ease the crowding in Brooklyn, well there's the (2)(3)(M)and (R) lines for that. I'm surprised crowding isn't that big of a problem.
Anyways that's it for this post.
