Wait, is there anybody left in New York City that still thinks that the Second Avenue subway is going to make its December 2016 deadline? Really, this is not news.

Okay, can we just say one thing? Maybe the MTA could focus on, you know, getting this sh*t done before they focus on making it pretty.

At this point, if we're lucky, maybe one day our grandchildren won't have to uber to Alphabet City from Yorkville. 

According to Curbed NY, the MTA posted briefing materials online earlier this month that revealed that the elevators and escalators at the 72nd Street station won't occur until late November.

... So if literally anything goes wrong, that doesn't leave a lot of time before the December 31st "deadline." 

Also, fire safety tests that were already supposed to have been done were pushed to the end of the month and fire safety tests are, we guess, something that's necessary to opening a mass transportation system. 

We're ready to suck it up but WHATEVER.

There is a possibility that the stations at 63rd, 86th, and 96th Street might actually open, separately, but we're really not holding our breath. We've been hurt too many times before. 

To make it all worse, the MTA is still maintaining that the subway will open on time, on December 31st, and we just don't understand what we did to be treated like this. How can they look us in the eyes and lie to us? 

 

WE WERE ROOTING FOR YOU, WE WERE ALL ROOTING FOR YOU. HOW DARE YOU?
