The Routes Not Taken

At several points in the 20th Century, plans were put forth to expand and develop a commuter rail system beyond what now exists. The Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s East Side Access project, now under way, is first project to have actually started. Another plan, dating back over a century, called for expanding the Hudson Tubes (now the PATH lines), and connecting it with a subway system then being proposed. Other, even more ambitious plans were considered. Chapter 7 discusses those plans.
