Even subway construction projects share on Facebook.
New York's MTA regularly posts updates on megaprojects on its Facebook page, and the update to the #7 line caught our eye.
The #7 train currently goes between Manhattan's Times Square and Flushing, Queens. As part of the redevelopment of Hudson Yards -- a stretch of land on Manhattan's far West Side -- the city has been working on extending the subway line southwest to 11th Avenue and 34th Street.
