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

I was going along with Chris's "why would a private company care". I hate to say it but, serving Queens residents is secondary as far as the Convention Center plans are concerned. They want people from Manhattan Hotels to be able to get there quickly and easily. If some Queens residents happen to benefit from it, well, that would be nice. There aren't too many "hotel clusters" in Queens with subway access... actually, I can't think of *any*.

As far as NIMBY, I am confident that if Genting wanted it done and was fully going to pay for it, Gov. Cuomo would be able to make them go away. He's gotten things pushed through that are far more unpopular than pissing off a handful of middle class queens residents.
