| | 1 Comment
This fall, DOT and the MTA will unveil their plan to keep New Yorkers moving when the L train west of Bedford Avenue shuts down for repairs. But what if the L train went away and nothing took its place?

It also includes an option to see how things change when you strip the western segment of the L train out of the system.
