Print The Who in the Q!

It’s been almost 100 years in the making, but on January 1, 2017 the new subway extension along Second Avenue opened to the public! What took so long? Who decides where and when subways get built?

In our latest Urban Investigation, CUP collaborated with Teaching Artist Nora Rodriguez and public high school students from Life Sciences Secondary School to dig deep into the new Q train extension.

Students hit the streets to survey commuters in the neighborhood, speak with policy makers, and tunnel into the topic of subway construction. The group gathered what they learned and created, The Who in the Q!, a booklet that presents the scoop on how subways get built and how public transportation can impact neighborhoods.
