After taking nearly a century to build, the Second Avenue subway extension in Manhattan opened on Sunday  with excitement and complaints.

.

Three new stations opened at 72nd, 86th and 96th Streets.

.

The route is an extension of the Q line, which now runs from the Upper East Side in Manhattan to Coney Island in Brooklyn.

Im Not Driving the Train, Cuomo Says

.

Shortly before noon on Sunday, a flood of New Yorkers streamed into the new 96th Street station, swiping their MetroCards and boarding the first Second Avenue subway train leaving the station. As the train pulled out, subway riders clapped and cheered.

.

Then Gov. Andrew M. Cuomos voice came over the loudspeaker, welcoming passengers to the historic ride.

.

Rest assured, Im not driving the train, he joked before thanking Metropolitan Transportation Authority workers for finishing the first segment of the line.

Its Been a Long Time Coming

.

Joe Caronetti, 68, of the Norwood neighborhood in the Bronx, had been waiting for the train since 10:15 a.m. on Sunday.

.

Not counting the 68 years prior, he added.

.

Mr. Caronetti, a retired banker, said it was the sixth time he had been on hand for the opening of a new train, having also gone on inaugural rides in Los Angeles and New Jersey.

.

Im just a train buff, he said, wearing an M.T.A. cap he had gotten on Friday.

.

Another train enthusiast at the station, Marvin Loja Espinoza, 17, a senior at Aviation High School, was waiting to get on the first train leaving there.

.

Originally from Ecuador, he discovered his love for trains when he moved to the United States in 2005. His hometown had no trains, he said.

.

Struggling to make friends in a new place, he spent his lunches in the library studying train maps, he said. His knowledge of the subway lines is so extensive that his friends call him M.T.A. Savage.

.

Ian Ma, 15, said that when he was a child, he would run his toy trains back and forth across the floor of the familys home in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn.

.

On Sunday, he couldnt stop grinning as he snapped photographs at the new station at 72nd Street. Ive always been a big train guy, he said. And I feel like Ive been waiting for this train my whole life.

.

Pete Cerwin, 51, has lived at 72nd Street and Second Avenue for 20 years. For him, it has been two decades of false starts, letdowns and construction.
