Map of the Dual Subway System, New York City, 1913
Map showing the “Dual Contracts” between the IRT, BMT, and City of New York for Subway expansion.  Most of the expansion outlined here was completed except for the Flushing-Bayside Extension of today’s 7 train and a crosstown line from Astoria to Coney Island which pre-dated the IND G train.
