eagermuscle saidSix years ago I moved from my gorgeous coop in the east sixties, which was undervalued because it was so far east of the Lexington Line subway, to my burb in Long Island.
When the Second Avenue subway is completed for all I know that coop may immediately double in price.
When LIRR trains can make use of Grand Central that'll also up the price of my home.
Of course, neither event will be completed when they'd be of any use to me. Trust me, I know sandhogs - their union wouldn't permit it! It's like over a decade ago when San Francisco rebuilt its earthquake damaged highways and infrastructure within maybe two years while I've been watching the same three guys shoveling asphalt into potholes on the Long Island Expressway - well, actually one shoveling, one looking at the shoveler, and one watching for traffic - for twenty.
I don't know. I sort of remember a bus going east in the 60s. Five years ago they had the metro pass or whatever it was called where you could transfer from a subway to a bus. So, I don't think your co-op being far from the Lex line was a big deal.
I remember the City University of New York offices being over that way; and, I used a bus, then.
They haven't finished either project?
A friend of mine worked on the LIRR to Grand Central project for a while.
