New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is said to be chugging ahead with an outside-the-box — and outside-the-state — proposal to further extend the No. 7 subway line to New Jersey, according to a New York Post report that said he will spend the next few months planning for it.
Already, New York State’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority is expanding the No. 7 line from its westward terminus expansion from Grand Central Terminal to a new station at 11th Avenue and West 34th Street, near the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center. The line runs easterly to the borough of Queens.
