On May 5, the New York Crossboro U planning studio taught by Prof. Robert Yaro and Dean Marilyn Taylor presented its finding to their client, the Regional Planning Association of New York. The studio proposed strategies to expand New York City's already extensive urban rail network to meet the mobility needs of the City's fast growing outer boroughs: Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx and Staten Island, including how a network of abandoned and under-utilized, but largely grade separated rail corridors across the boroughs could be repurposed in a rapid, cost-effective way into a modern surface transit system similar to London's new "Overground" network.
