Proposing a Subway Freight System for NYC

Elisabeth Weiman

Makoto Okazaki, partner and principal architect at Michael Sorkin Studio, consulting on Terreform's New York City [Steady] State project, spoke at Urban Design Forum about a new form of mobility for the city. Makoto's proposal for a "Subway Freight System for NYC" introduced the idea of adapting the subway system to move goods. The subway could be used late at night to transfer items to distribution hubs and then in the early morning to move freight to shops throughout the city. He took this a step further, claiming that this would free up space above ground for pedestrians, recreation, and even urban farming.
