The Real Deal

For most, the idea of traffic-less, headache-free travel is nothing but a pipe dream. For Elon Musk, it could be the future of mass transit.

Last summer, the tech mogul tweeted that he received “verbal govt approval” for his fabeled Hyperloop, a high-speed transportation system that would send passengers sailing through low-pressure tubes at speeds in excess of 700 miles per hour.

Though some developers doubt the project will ever happen, The Real Deal sought out five vacant lots where Hyperloop stations could go if it ever comes to New York City. The sites are based largely on their proximity to existing transportation, population hubs and similarities to the lot in D.C. where Musk received an actual permit to do some excavation work.
