Re: NY Post: L train almost eliminated?

Yes, actually all the streets on the one side of Forest Ave are in the 10-XX Brooklyn sequence. You cross Forest Ave, and they move to the QUeens system 60-XX. This is completely because the mail in Ridgewood came out of the Brooklyn post office and where this discrepancy comes from. There's only one or two exceptions, like Catalpa Ave, which doesn't run in to the Bushwick street grid.

Furthermore, it's also why all those Ridgewood streets kept their old street names when the rest of Queens lost them to the numbering system. In this case every street from the LIRR Montauk Branch to the M train kept their names, as well as the streets on one side of Forest Ave. Oddly, the only part of Ridgewood to lose it's street names to numbers are on the other side of the M train, but northeast of Forest Ave. (Again, Catalpa Ave being an exception). It's very odd.
