Eighty-Sixth Street Crosstown Line[edit]

Do you remember in February 2017, when you offered to move my sandbox for the 86th Street Crosstown Line bus/former trolley and work on it yourself? Well if you can keep the existing name, I might consider letting you grab it from me and expanding it. ---------User:DanTD (talk) 03:39, 16 May 2017 (UTC)

@DanTD: Sure. If you want, you can move it to my userspace or to the draft space. I'll definitely find sources to expand it, and I can keep the existing name. epicgenius (talk) 03:42, 16 May 2017 (UTC)
Ugh! Now I can't decide which one I want to send it to. ---------User:DanTD (talk) 10:49, 17 May 2017 (UTC)
@DanTD: I'll just copy it to my third sandbox if you want. I have a few bus drafts there already. epicgenius (talk) 12:20, 17 May 2017 (UTC)
Okay, that's a nice start. But what I want to know is when was the Eight Sixth Street Railroad established, who acquired it before New York Railways (maybe Metropolitan Traction Company?) or did NYR acquire it themselves? These and other issues kept me from finishing the article. ---------User:DanTD (talk) 22:27, 17 May 2017 (UTC)
@DanTD: I need to do some research on that, but I'll keep you posted if I find something. epicgenius (talk) 03:55, 18 May 2017 (UTC)

28th Street Station Elevator[edit]

Do you know why the elevator is out of service right now (and when the elevator will be reopened for customer usage)? It would be really helpful to know that as soon as possible. Thanks! — Preceding unsigned comment added by NewYorkYankeesVersusNewYorkMets09281999 (talkcontribs) 04:39, 18 May 2017 (UTC)

I have no idea how long it's out of service, since it's privately owned. To my knowledge, the elevator has never been open. epicgenius (talk) 12:24, 18 May 2017 (UTC)

You are invited to join the Wikimedia NYC community for our monthly "WikiWednesday" evening salon (7-9pm) and knowledge-sharing workshop at Babycastles gallery by 14th Street / Union Square in Manhattan.

Topics this month include the TED wikiproject, the Met wikiproject, and encouraging free video on Wikimedia Commons!

We will include a look at the organization and planning for our chapter, and expanding volunteer roles for both regular Wikipedia editors and new participants.

We will also follow up on plans for recent and upcoming edit-a-thons, museum and library projects, education initiatives, and other outreach activities.

We welcome the participation of our friends from the Free Culture movement and from all educational and cultural institutions interested in developing free knowledge projects.

After the main meeting, pizza/chicken/vegetables and refreshments and video games in the gallery!

7:00pm - 9:00 pm at Babycastles gallery, 137 West 14th Street

We especially encourage folks to add your 5-minute lightning talks to our roster, and otherwise join in the "open space" experience! Newcomers are very welcome! Bring your friends and colleagues! --Pharos (talk) 19:31, 22 May 2017 (UTC)

Lower Montauk Branch Rail Study[edit]

Because of Elizabeth Crowley's efforts, a study is being undertaken for light rail on the Lower Montauk Branch. This should be included in an article, but Lower Montauk Branch redirects to the Montauk Branch page. Perhaps the Lower Montauk Branch article should be split off. Could you share your thoughts? Thanks.--Kew Gardens 613 (talk) 18:57, 26 May 2017 (UTC)
