Re: Q66 Bus Stops Discontinued Every 4 Blocks Or So.

The background regarding this racial tension is much appreciated. Considering this happened during the late 70s/early 80s at the dawn of the crack era, I unfortunately can't say that their worries were unfounded, but they were surely overblown. You mentioned Canarsie, which to this day is still a very quiet and decent working class neighborhood that has done well post-"white flight".

You can also look at Forest Hills, which has had a busy subway station connecting it to areas like Jamaica and Queensbridge within minutes for decades now, and it remains one of the wealthier areas in the city with a nice little bustling shopping strip along Austin Street. Glendale, Maspeth, etc missed out for sure!
