    I’ve backed off the CS since they are going to build it come hell or high water (probably both by the time they are done) but this statement by CW still leads people to believe that North Beach will be getting a station and it isn’t, planning hasn’t even begun (though SPUR *cough*BS*cough* is starting discussions for phase 3 this weekend w/ an invite only event).

    “There’s a feeling in North Beach that a majority of residents are in favor of this. They’d love to see the Pagoda come down and they’d like the possibility of a subway that would bring business to the neighborhood and take them downtown.”

    CW, the nearest station is Washington & Stockton some 70 ft underground with only one ingress/egress. Not going to bring much good to North Beach and beyond.
