Digging The Second Avenue Subway

This video ran last week on CBS Sunday morning, but it's a very well done piece about the progress of the Second Avenue Subway. As someone who has almost always lived off of Second Avenue in my 14 years in Manhattan, the Second Avenue Subway has been a bit of an urban legend. Would it ever really happen? Now that it is underway, it's still only three stops long.

But it's needed. I've done two tours of duty living on the Upper East Side, and the subways in the morning are reason enough for me to pause before ever moving back. Even if the subway only goes three stops, and through the most residential sections, maybe it will be an improvement.
