Re: Original q30-31 routing

I went back to the 1924 aerial and there are very few ways of crossing the LIRR that would have been available. To the west of Fresh Meadow Lane, there was 162nd Street. To the east, 192nd Street and Francis Lewis Blvd, neither of which ran south of Northern. I'd guess the LIRR bridge at Utopia post-dates the 31. Maybe someday I'll have a few hours to check the build dates on the PW branch bridges in eastern Queens.

There are a few fragments of that stretch of Utopia shown on the 1924 map, but I see nothing between 37th and 42nd Aves, and nothing south of Northern.
