Creating new transit systems in a retail and commercial setting can be instrumental in the activation of additional "street" levels. The author discusses the case of the planned construction in New York City of a new subway line, the Second Avenue subway. Essentially the legislative proposal would extend the public domain below-grade and into the ground floor area by establishing easements for the movement of people within the property line of new projects in the Special Transit use Districts. A full realization of American urban-planning potential will create new instruments of ownership, liability, profit participation, and planning incentives.
