So we've basically said, on multiple occasions, until we see it, we don't know how to believe in the Second Avenue Subway.
We know it's a little ridiculous. We can't ignore the construction. The MTA has even already announced the art that will decorate the station. But considering the track (haHA) record, we rest our case.
We could barely believe our eyes, however, when we saw an actual video of an actual, non-rendered, subway car running down the Second Avenue track.
As reported by Gothamist, a self-attributed "transit enthusiast" DJ Hammers was on the Lexington Avenue-63rd Street platform last Sunday and recorded the test car on the Second Avenue Subway tracks.
"I came across some test trains passing Lexington Avenue-63rd St to test
the third rail, signals, and track on the newly-built Second Avenue
Subway!" captioned Hammers.
It's worth it to point out that even if the track is operational, we know from experience that there are a whole lot of other things that can delay the process anyway.
So... is this train actually coming? Will we ever know? Was that even a real subway car? Where all our moon landing people at?
Fake or nah? Check it out below:
