What plans real, or 'wish list' are there to extend the #7 to either Javits or to the proposed new West Side Stadium?

No wishlist, it's quite real, actually.

A lot of opposition to the #7 extension has developed. It's not clear if NY State is backing it right now. I thought it was a done deal, but it isn't. We'll have to see what develops.

They should extend it to the west side, jets stadium or no jets stadium. From there, bring it downtown via west side highway. It could terminate at the Fulton St transit center.

A great suggestion.

Unfortunately, the chances of having that extension without the stadium (or the Olympic bid for that matter) is pretty slim.

Mayor Mike wants it, but the TA says it can't afford to do it (anymore).
Mike told Gov. George he needs it to get the Olympics here. George is all of a sudden a bit hard of hearing :-(
