Wired explores the possible upsides to the impending L Train shut down, a problem which many of us here at Adafruit have been dreading/ignoring/hoping will go away.
Make no mistake: The shutdown is going to suck. The city and its Metropolitan Transportation Authority are already scrambling to figure out how to get L train riders from Brooklyn not just into Manhattan, but across the island, running under 14th Street. No combination of ferries, buses, bike lanes, and even gondolas can fully replace the L, which moves 300,000 people on a typical weekday.
But there’s light in this tunnel, and not just at the end. If New York makes the right moves, it could turn this pile of lemons into pure Beyoncé, giving its denizens a better way to move through its canyons.
