There were alternative proposals that supposedly would have been less extreme. But I'm not qualified to judge them. I can say that tunneling in Manhattan is difficult at best because there is so much already underground.What about going under the 7 Train from Hunterspoint? Much shorter route than going all the way up to 63rd street and then going down to Grand Central without connecting with Metro North?
