This chapter discusses plans to build a subway line along Fulton Street in Brooklyn that would have extended into southeast Queens. Although part of the line was completed and put into service, the full line was never completed, although there have long been rumors about how part of the line was actually built. Chapter 6 separates fact from legend and also looks at the previous plans for the Fulton Street line that would have connected it with the BMT, rather than building as part of the IND system, as well as the efforts to demolish elevated subways in the city, rather than keeping them in service.
