Re: Best Article I've Read on Reasons to Reactivate the Rockaway Beach Line

The answer to that may be more severe. 104th St and Woodhaven Blvd are both to far from the Rockaway Branch to connect with a station there, a transfer that would be vital to the Rockaway Branch.
I would perhaps suggest abandoning both the Woodhaven station, and the 104th St station, and building a new station at the Rockaway Branch called "Woodhaven Blvd", with it's east end at 98th St, with a connection to the Rockaway Branch, and it's west end at 94th St, a block away from Woodhaven Blvd itself, and which would be around where the east end of the current Woodhaven Blvd station is now. This would allow the continuation of a station at Woodhaven Blvd, as well as a connection to the new station on the Rockaway Branch.
The new station on the Jamaica el wouldn't be too hard to make, as it would just be a side platform station with the platforms hanging off the side of the el as it does now.
If you want to get really fancy, it could be rebuilt as an express station, in coordination with adding a third track to the Jamaica El, another necessary project.
