Re: NY Post: L train almost eliminated?

The MTA wanted to eliminate the J[from Crescent to 121] due to the proposed Montauk-63rd connection using the Jamaica El and Archer avenue subway..
The riders..neighborhood and all of North Brooklyn saw this as a very sneaky way of the MTA to eliminate the El as a way to cut the cost of rebuilding[like the did all the other elevated lines in Brooklyn that are sorely needed today]..and to reduce its "responsibility"..

Not only was that a backwards way of doing business..it would also strand thousands of customers to riding neighborhood buses as feeder routes to the subway..which in more ways than one would lead to more disaster[see the B54/38/52 and BX55 bus line that subbed for the Lexington Avenue,Myrtle and Third avenue elevated]..

Who's idea was it to do away with the main portion of transportation operating in the city?
It couldnt have been a problem to the riders..
It couldnt have been due to "blight of the structures"..
who decided that they were no longer feasible..no long viable..no longer needed?

I know who it was..but I'd like to hear from you guys...to get you thoughts on it..
