good things come to those who wait…

I was packed into a crowded subway, heading uptown at rush hour yesterday evening and read one of the MTA (Metropolitan Transportation Authority) announcements that line ceiling of the subway car.  

“Starting in 2015, the new Second Avenue subway will help relieve the overcrowding on the Lexington lines.  Overdue, but excellent news”

I laughed a little.  They were talking about this when I lived out here in the city three years ago (summer ’05).  I don’t think any New Yorkers are holding their breath.  And to think that we used to make fun of Barranquilla for their standstill urban transportation projects.
