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

There was a plan some years ago, however to relocate the entire line along Jamaica Av and eliminate the Fulton structure. the walking distance between Fulton St and Jamaica Av di not really that great except possibly for Crescent St which is the point of greatest distance between the two thoroughfares. Passengers who live between Fulton and Jamaica Av will experience less inconvenience and depending on their distance from the existing line, none at all. The passengers on the other side of Fulton would of course experience the greatest amount of inconvenience and an origin/destination survey would determine whether of not the possible additional ridership from the outer portions of the line resulting from the consequential lower running time would be worth the slight inconvenience to those along the Fulton corridor. It probably wouldn't be any more significant than the effect of the relocation of the Jamaica Line from Jamaica Av to Archer Av.
