As seen on the map below, the train’s genesis was the stop at 57th Street and 6th Avenue and is noted with a tiny plane (as are all its stops, as seen below). The information here was gathered from NYC Subway, a searchable wiki about the transit systems of New York.
Here at Untapped Cities, we have a history of looking at New York City’s transit systems. Located within Renaissance Plaza, and adjacent to the Metro Tech Center and surrounding universities, New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge is in walking distance to Manhattan's Financial District, with 11 major subway lines all within one block.
The train was actually slower than the A service, though many residents of Howard Beach, Queens were happy to pay extra for a more comfortable ride to work or home. It was also the first decade in the city’s history where track mileage was lost, not gained. It would terminate at the Howard Beach-JFK Airport stop where an express bus would take passengers to their terminal. There is a current proposal to re-establish the line as an express and would operate via the LIRR Atlantic Branch. But with the arrival of Sandy, I interrupted that second project as well and, at the urging of several friends, started collecting notes on the hurricane for a Sandy posting, so as I write this, I have two website projects on hold. At Bellevue, on the river between 26th and 28th Streets on the map, backup generators in the basement flooded and failed, and a bucket brigade of doctors, nurses, and administrators was set up to bring fuel to secondary backup generators upstairs.
Service would eventually extend northerly to Queensbridge-21st Street in Queens, though this wouldn’t last more than eight months. Regardless, maps like these provide a glimpse at the surprising organic and mercurial nature of the New York City Subway system. However, Bellevue eventually had to be evacuated, since there was no water, power, or elevators. Regular high tides are supplemented by seasonal high winds that can reach hurricane force, such as the scirocco from the Sahara, and the bora locally, which either push a storm surge up the Adriatic and into Venice's lagoon, or conversely, prevent floodwaters from leaving, resulting in scenes such as this in Piazza San Marco, where, if the flooding is significant enough, the city installs temporary wooden walkways (Photo by Giovanni Mello), such as these for tourists waiting to enter the Basilica di San Marco. Notable was the patient recovering from triple bypass surgery who walked down 10 flights of stairs to a waiting FEMA ambulance to be evacuated.
Hospital officials noted that this was the first sustained closure since the hospital opened in 1736. Sandy's surge at Battery Park surpassed the previous record surge in 1821 (see below) of 13 ft (4 m), that earlier surge having come within one hour, and at low tide to boot!
NYU Langone is one of NYC's top academic medical centers, and has clinical, research, and academic facilities. The storm cost the hospital between $700 million and $1 billon, for, as the Times said, "cleanup, rebuilding, lost revenue, interrupted research projects and the cost of paying employees not to work." The East River filled its basement, knocked out power, caused the evacuation of 300 patients over 13 hours, and disrupted classes and research projects, and there's a fear that research projects depending on outside funding might go elsewhere, given the need to "publish or perish". I'll mention for the time being that, given all the chaos in the City and the region, I was lucky enough to be personally unaffected by the storm. Despite being in the center of the maelstrom, I didn't evacuate, didn't lose power, phone, or internet, was not flooded, and had a supply of food on hand. On that basis, I then had time to sift carefully through daily copies of the New York Times, and watch TV reportage of events as they were occurring, primarily on the news station NY1, including speeches by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo. Four MRI machines and similar equipment in the basement are now worthless; in the future, they should be kept on higher floors. This is the exact opposite of the period right after Nine Eleven, when we were without power and were really quite out of it as to what was going on, even though we were just four blocks from Ground Zero, not learning details until days later when we were in a hotel.
Although all backup generators were on a high floor except for one in the basement, the fuel tanks were also in the basement, a common situation where power outages might be expected but not floods. It used to be part of the Lower East Side to its south, but when, in the late 1960's, it began to develop its own identity and culture, when artists, musicians, students, and hippies began moving into the area, where Beatniks had lived since the 1950's. While the "West Village" really is the west part of Greenwich Village, calling this area to its east the East Village gives it cachet, but, while it actually refers to its location EAST OF Greenwich Village, most people probably mistakenly think it's really the eastern part of the Village, from which it has a very different atmosphere. As described in a Times article devoted to the restaurant, red banquettes were ripped from the wall, refrigerators were toppled, wiring was corroded, a new Steinway piano was destroyed, Georgian antiques were damaged. What was described as three "cargo vans" of caviar, lobster, beef, veal, duck, and foie gras had to be thrown out. Rare wines are a specialty, but "anything floating" had to be discarded because of cork damage.
Lost labels made wine bottles unsalable, including the many bottles they offer that are worth thousands of dollars each. Recently seven couples were celebrating their Silver Wedding Anniversary on the same night, and were assembled for a picture. It's in the East Twenties and Thirties, and the site where the British invaded New York (Manhattan) in 1776.


We also mentioned Bellevue Hospital, the country's oldest public hospital, as being in the Kips Bay area.
Click to enlarge to inspect how thoroughly the pier has been eaten away, and how the Star jet roller coaster now looks like a skeletal sea serpent. This is North End Beach (Photo by Rmccold), with its boardwalk, dunes, and oceanfront houses.
This view is over Highlands NJ, and on a clear day, the New York skyline would be visible in the distance. On the map can be seen on the left Coney Island, which is now connected to Brooklyn by landfill, and the Rockaway Peninsula in Queens, with Jamaica Bay behind it. Then beyond the city limits can be seen Jones Beach Island, Fire Island, and the very long Westhampton Island. A coastal storm surge also came down Long Island Sound, affecting shorelines around it, including Connecticut, and reaching to City Island in the Bronx, then continuing down the East River to meet the surge coming up the harbor. Power outages on Long Island reached an incredible 90%, some repaired relatively promptly, some lasting for weeks. These Long Island Rail Road tracks (Photo by MTA Photos) on the Oyster Bay Branch on the North Shore show downed, live electric cables. Just before Sandy, there were pictures of the ferries leaving Fire Island for the mainland, but then the mainland was evacuated as well. There have been large dunes on the sea front affording protection, but word has it that these were washed away in many communities. A Times picture showed dunes missing that had done their job, but that won't be there next time. The lighter-colored area is the City of Long Beach, and to its west is the village of Atlantic Beach. Much of it, as well as Jamaica Bay, is part of the Gateway National Recreation Area, including Sandy Hook and parts of Staten Island, all of which were in harm's way. This detail shows the peninsula is attached to Brooklyn by bridge, and a causeway with a road, and trestle with the subway, both cross Jamaica Bay to its center. Where the peninsula is attached to the mainland of LI on its east end (Photo by Jorfer) is Kennedy Airport (runways in background). The black line running the length of the peninsula is the east end of the elevated subway line, which starts in the East at Mott Avenue and roughly Beach 22nd Street. The rail trestle crossing the bay can be seen at the left at about Beach 84th Street, at which point the west end of the elevated continues to Beach 116th Street. Much of the open land area of JFK Airport was under water, and the arrival area of Delta's Terminal 3 was severely flooded, color-coded maps indicating it was in the 6-18 ft (2-6 m) range of depth. I hadn't been on the line to the Rockaways for a long time, so I'm now very familiar with it. When you're well oriented, note this trestle damage with a totally washed-out track support as the line crosses the Bay. This is what the open-air Broad Channel Station (Photo by Rayv145) on that island looks like in normal times.
I never expected to read about that happening here, but it did after Sandy, in the Rockaways. It was determined that, while the trestle would take six months to repair, the Rockaways could still have local service, and so, by the weekend after Sandy on Monday, 20 subway cars, each 60 ft (18.3 m) long and weighing 40 US tons (36 metric tons) were loaded on flatbed trucks in Ozone Park, just north of Howard Beach, driven over four nights over Cross Bay Boulevard, the vehicular causeway over Jamaica Bay, to the Beach 116th Street station at the west end.
Then, at the Mott Street Station at the eastern end, a shuttle bus service has been instituted to bring subway passengers around Kennedy Airport to get on the remaining line at Howard Beach. West of the end of the line at Beach 116th Street are several communities, including Belle Harbor, which is considered to run from Beach 126th to Beach 142nd Streets, and then, after some parkland, the very isolated community of Breezy Point, whose streets run up to Beach 227th Street.
The community lost many individuals in Nine Eleven, and then on 12 November the same years, American Airlines Flight 587 crashed in the center of Belle Harbor, killing all 260 passengers and crew on board, as well as five people on the ground in Belle Harbor. I remember a few years ago trying to visit the community, knowing that it was isolated behind a fence, and I drove along the fence from bay to ocean, just barely being able to see houses on Beach 201st Street behind the wall, but not being allowed to enter via the residents' gate.
I know there are gated communities elsewhere, but Breezy Point had in it what seemed to have once been city streets, but which were now private ones. Beyond that, of New York City's only ten remaining volunteer fire departments, three are in Breezy Point. Breezy Point is not unique as being a private enclave, since, at the western end of nearby Coney Island is the 113-year-old private enclave of Sea Gate, which has 850 homes, and whose land once belonged to the Vanderbilt family. Sea Gate has razor-wire-topped fences and armed security checkpoints, but it, too, was severely flooded, and they now are looking for outside help, a turnaround that is being ill-received by homeowners on the other side of the fence, as in Breezy Point, who complain that these communities have chosen to live apart. The City has no formal obligation, since developers applied to have any former city streets within the enclaves demapped, making those streets private.


While the height of the storm was in the early evening, by 11 PM a six-alarm fire was reported in Breezy Point.
Given the high flood levels at the time, the three companies of local volunteer firefighters were trapped, and the New York City fire department could also not reach Breezy Point until the floods receded.
It immediately struck me that the fact that that fence blocked off the isolationist community could certainly not have helped. The Breezy Point fire during Sandy is one of the City's worst residential fires since the New York Fire Department was established in 1865. Published maps show it was completely inundated, and water reached several blocks inland beyond Coney Island, including Sheepshead Bay and further along, Canarsie.
Adjacent Brighton Beach, with its large Russian community, was flooded, including some notable Russian restaurants. It's the oldest continually operating aquarium in the US, having started in Battery Park in 1896. The animals were already stressed, and evacuating them elsewhere, which was considered, would have made it worse. Most notably, a basement flooded that had fish exhibits and generators to filter tanks and provide oxygen.
The Midland Beach community was flooded inland a dozen blocks, and much of the flooding in its center was color-coded on published maps as being in the 6 -18 ft (2-6 m) area.
When people evacuated after Irene and then nothing happened, it gave a false sense of security, and many stayed for Sandy.
Midland Beach, with 8 deaths, had the highest concentration of deaths in one place in all NYC. Some who didn't evacuate moved to the upper levels of their 2-3 story houses, and had to be evacuated afterward, often by boat (shades of what I saw in New Orleans after Katrina) but many houses in Midland Beach were one-story bungalows, and near the water as well, and were doomed.
In Staten Island, this doorless house (Photo by Jim Henderson) is on the street facing the baya€”compare the lower and upper levels. Right after the storm, the Historic House Trust of New York City sent out an email to all members, saying there was no damage to any of its historic properties. It did show a picture, however, of a large tree having fallen right up to the Alice Austen House, but fortunately not hitting it. The main lines for Amtrak and the Hudson Line of the Metro North Railroad run right along the river, seen here to the left of the flooded tracks north of the Garrison Station. Most bizarre is this boat on the tracks near the Ossining Station (Three Photos by MTA Photos).
The morning after Sandy, with electricity out, diesel-powered patrol trains went searching for damage to repair.
In some places, trees had crushed the third rail on the Hudson and Harlem Lines, or were caught up in the overhead catenary wires on the New Haven Line.
These are National Guardsmen in Hoboken two days after Sandy, on Wednesday, Halloween (Photo by the National Guard). I had to resort to Flickr to find a copy of this picture I'd seen of a flooded taxi parking lot in Hoboken (AP Photo by Charles Sykes, posted on Flickr by Mark LaFlaur). The historic Hoboken Terminal is right on the Hudson (Photo by Bob Jagendorf), with ferry connections to Manhattan. I referred on the posting for the Port Jervis trip to its renovated waiting room (Photo by Arnold Reinhold).
Both PATH tunnels as well as the riverside stations at Hoboken Terminal, Exchange Place in Jersey City, and the World Trade Center in Manhattan, were flooded. This is, in better days, the street stair to PATH (Photo by Wallyg) under the prophetically named Hudson Place next to Hoboken Terminal.
This is a train down below in the Exchange Place Station (Photo by Trevor Logan) about to go under the Hudson headed for the WTC (World Trade Center). This was the sign at the WTC Station (Photo by Nikopoley) indicating the way down the escalators and stairs in the left background, down which the waters flowed. The northern PATH tunnel was the first to be ready for service again, with limited service, with the rest of the PATH system gradually recovering.
