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

Posted by Train Man Paul : Metro-North's Best Conductor FOR ALL 3 LINES!!! on Sun May 6 10:25:24 2012, in response to Re: Best Article I've Read on Reasons to Reactivate the Rockaway Beach Line, posted by Wallyhorse on Sun May 6 10:19:45 2012.

overcome any NIMBY opposition (sure, there would be some, but I don't think enough, especially if Genting wants it and the Governor wants it)

Keep in mind, HEAVY NIMBYism in Ozone Park, Woodhaven and Rego Park (the latter locale being very vocal and influential in Queens and city politics) shot down the right of way being used as a route from Manhattan to JFK, which thus would have served Aqueduct had it been approved for use as a route between Manhattan and JFK. I think the opposition once again would be enough to keep this line shuttered!!

Don't get me wrong, I'd love to see, as I always do, any idled rail line returned to service, especially if it will be for the good of my home borough. But face it, it will be nothing more than just chatter and maybe a drop or two of ink in a newspaper or a letter suggesting its revival.
