Please join us in envisioning a Post-Moses New York, what it means for the city, and how to make it a reality.
"In the twentieth century, the influence of Robert Moses on the cities of America was greater than that of any other person."
Robert Moses fundamentally altered New York in the 20th century, and his legacy continues to shape the region to this day. But New York now faces a unique opportunity to move beyond the Moses era. By properly reinvesting in our infrastructure, we can build a world class regional network that makes it possible to get from anywhere to everywhere.
ReThink Studio is an urban transportation planning firm with a reputation for developing holistic solutions for both small and large-scale transportation problems. We are best known for our award-winning transportation plan for the New York City region, ReThinkNYC.
ReThinkNYC is a new way of thinking about New York City and the region. Many of the region's most challenging problems--such as housing and employment--can be solved by addressing underlying transportation limitations with a new, more holistic approach that uses existing infrastructure and new technology to unify and integrate the region's disparate transportation systems into a single network that would provide an affordable, convenient alternative to the automobile, creating the nation's first "car-optional" region.
ReThink Studio's Solution to the L Train Shutdown
ReThink Studio's proposal would distribute passengers from the L train to the underutilized G line infrastructure and bring those passengers directly into Manhattan on the E line. In other words, we propose extending the E from its present terminus at the Word Trade Center into northern Brooklyn along the G line. This change would allow L train passengers to transfer at Lorimer-Metropolitan to this new E service directly to Manhattan. Once the work is completed, this direct Manhattan-bound service would continue to benefit neighborhoods along this line.
