Apparengtly Miss Heather has a friend named Ms. Bitch Cakes who lives in Queens and blogs about transit. I was sent this gem recently:
Are they serious?! An enclosed transfer from the E-G-V to the 7?! How on earth did this happen?! Elevators AND Escalators? What is this, the 21st century or something?! Surely, they must be joking! Really, this all seems to good to be true.
Call me a pessimist (I prefer the term "realist", thank you); but I'm saying there is no way they will make their February 2010 projected date because the MTA will tell us all of the following 1) things are taking longer than they expected 2) this project costs more than they expected 3) the MTA is broke and need more money (Guess who they turn to first? Yep, their ridership! More fare hikes!)
