Second Avenue Subway | Buttigieg joins New York pols in hailing federal funds for long-awaited East Harlem extension

U.S. Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg made his way to East Harlem on Saturday to formally kickoff the funding deal for the long-awaited Second Avenue Subway extension — much to the delight of Upper Manhattan’s congressional delegation.

During the Nov. 4 signing event at the proposed upper terminus of the line near 125th Street, Buttigieg and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer touted the community value that the $3.4 billion grant will provide for Harlemites.
