Re: New Queens Boulevard-Rockaway Branch

The part about the financial district comes from the what was said about the (A). I also said I'm assuming in this case that if Genting (a company based in Malaysia, NOT a person) were to be convinced to pay for this connection, they would want it from a line that serves the financial district so after the workday, people who want to go to the Casino can do so without having to go through Brooklyn on the (A) and on a (W) in this case that likely would be far less crowded given the train would start at Whitehall Street.

Also, the financial district itself is much more heavily residential these days than it was even 10 years ago, plus there are a number of hotels down there now that didn't exist 15-20 years ago. That also plays into how I would be looking to do this.

If the financial district is not an issue, then I would have the (M) go full-time to Rockaway Park (either way, the (G) would return to the QB line to 71st-Continental all times and 179th Rush hours with the (F) a full express during rush hours).
