Re: Lawmakers: southern Queens commuters need a new railway more than the QueensWay

This is a matter of selfishness and narcissism, not intelligence.

Queens NIMBY's and political leaders of their time like Donald Manus and Geraldine Ferraro got the Jamaica el prematurely torn down (which damned near got the whole thing to be abandoned back to Crescent Street), and prevented any productive use of the Lower Montauk, then other trouble-makers got tearing out of the busier mezzanine of the 2 at Elderts Lane, Forest Pkwy, and 102nd Street stations.

Do not under-estimate their success in keeping any sort of train off the Rockaway line, or any other destruction. Ozone Park wants it, but Woodhaven, Richmond Hill, Parkside section of Forest Hills, and Rego Park do not.
