Among them are increased access to the far East Side of Manhattan, decreased crowding on the Lexington Avenue lines, and the creation of New York's very own T, which is bound to please transplanted Bostonians. There's also this: When else do you get to refer to a project delayed for some 80 years as having an "early start"?
