Second Avenue Sagas Podcast
Episode 12 (The Second Ave. Subway with Philip Plotch)
In mid-March, Phil Plotch published a new book called The Last Subway: The Long Wait for the Next Train in New York City. The former transit planner-turned-political science professor has penned the definitive book on the history of the Second Ave. Subway and its trials and travails. He joins me on to discuss the tortured saga behind the new subway, the Gov. Cuomo-inspired rush to completion and if the three-stop extension that made up Phase 1 of the project will really be New York City's last subway.
