Video Of The First New Subway Line In NYC For Almost 100 Years

While most of us are lamenting and mentally preparing for the closure of the L train, those with the money to live in Manhattan’s East Side are preparing for the city’s first new subway line since 1932.

The T train, as it will be called, was first on the table 97 years ago, but quickly abandoned due to the economic strife caused by the great depression.

Now we can expect the line to open on December 30th of this year running between 96th Street and Second Avenue and the existing 63rd Street Lines, where it will connect to the BMT Broadway Line and the rest of the subway system (see the image below the video).
