Second Avenue Subway Line Opens In Manhattan

By Seth Fera-Schanes

The culmination of years (that turned into decades) of digging and construction was realized today with the public opening of the second avenue subway line.img_8763

I took a trip on the inaugural ride and enjoyed every moment of it.  The train line consists of 3 new stops along second avenue on Manhattan’s Upper East Side at 96th street, 86th street and 72nd street.img_8766

The spacious stations offer clean (at least for now) halls, wide platforms and nice elevators and escalators.  Each station also has some really thoughtful artwork that makes a trip to the east side worth it just for the pictures. img_8771

Be sure to make a special stop uptown to see New York’s newest transit addition.
