New York, NY - Mayor Michael Bloomberg says the city’s considering extending the route of the No. 7 subway line into New Jersey, and the economics of the proposal “seem to make some sense.

Bloomberg said Wednesday that the subway line extension to Manhattan’s far west side is on budget, and he believes the city could work with the state governments of New York and New Jersey and with the federal government to secure funding for the project.

The mayor’s office says the city is spending $250,000 for an as-yet unfinished feasibility study about a possible expansion of the subway tunnel under the Hudson River and to Secaucus, N.J.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie liked the idea, telling WCBS (880 AM) radio on Wednesday that his state will “pony up its fair share.”

Before he goes ahead with that, maybe he can fix our streets and get rid of Ms Sadk Kahn's dangerous pedestrian islands and bike lanes.

If the obese governor of NJ cancelled the new commuter rail line into Penn Station at a cost to his state of over a billion dollars, why would he support building a new subway line into upper Manhattan.

He may be obese but you are a major ferd! You cant get your point across without resorting to name calling. We all know he is overweight or under-tall. Since you are NO DOUBT a lib maybe he has a disease which makes him heavy or unable to lose weight. You always make fun of the less fortunate?!?!? SHAME ON YOU!

The reason he cancelled the other project was because of cost overruns. It made total sense!! This "plan" albeit around for a while and reincarnated many many many times actually MAKES SENSE in principal.

Interesting concept...I wonder if the idea of transfers to NJ bus or rail lines could be added to the mix...

I have no investments in Ferd, Ltd. although I wish I had. They generally do not bid on contracts in the U.S. although they are one of the major suppliers of equipment to similiar projects in Europe. Thus, I doubt they or any of their subsidiaries had any role in the project Christie cancelled .

That's already built in. Secaucus is a major rail junction -- almost all of the rail lines in NJ pass through it. There are also a number of bus lines that stop at the Secaucus rail station -- and that can be increased. The Secaucus rail station is right next to the NJ Turnpike and has its own special exit, 15X.

yes. It would be great to see a train from N.Y.C. to Monsey. But it's not gona be the NYC. T. to do it. They can go only across the river to a location you'l be able to take a NJ train. So maybe Fort Lee or Englewood NJ.
in a few years, When the Newburgh Stewart airport will become a international airport. Maybe then we will have the port authority plan a train to Midtown.

Ye, he has a disease called eating too much unhealthy food and not properly exercising. He should skip some pasta and meat balls for some light vegetarian food. Plus he can afford 10 stomach stapling surgeries by top doctors. The cost overruns were because of his business pals sucking too much government contract moneys while not doing any work. MTA can barely operate its system. The second Avenue line is decades in the making; the subway to Staten Island will come when Moshiach comes, and not Bloomy has another bad dream about Jersey line? NEVER GONNA HAPPEN

Don't hold your breath waiting for Newburgh to become a major airport. With JFK, LGA, EWR, ALB, and even BDL "nearby," there is no way any sane airline would put major operations here.
