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

I never said it was complicated, but it's something that has to be done. You have finally come around to admit that major work will probably be necessary on the bridges and infrastructure. And again, "inspections" or bare minimum maintenance so it doesn't fall to the street is not the same as maintenance if heavy trains were going over every 10 minutes.

As for the bridges at Atlantic....it's the same rusty lost paint bare steel that has been seen all over the line.

And as for 97 Ave, if you look, you will see that the "fresh paint" on the left side of the street was done to remove graffiti on that side, as well as the overspan, where that business is located:

If you pan over to the other side of the street, where that business is not located, it's full of graffiti, and no paint, and crumbling concrete and rusty metal. That paint was done similarly to how they cover over graffiti in the subway too and by that business under the structure on that side, not as "maintenance".
