Re: Left Behind by the Nationís Largest Subway System

Posted by New Flyer #857 on Thu Dec 28 09:17:43 2017, in response to Left Behind by the Nationís Largest Subway System, posted by Michael549 on Thu Dec 28 00:18:03 2017.

Given this thread so far, the very nature of a "city" comes into question I think. Yes, NYC has its technical borders with its five boroughs, but the city has always had its people deliberately living on its fringes, and often not wanting a subway there. Maybe some places were promised subways (Whitestone, I believe), but I doubt people in Douglaston or Glen Oaks settled planning to soon be walking to a subway station. At the time I wonder if those people cared whether they were in Queens or Nassau (though now there are clear differences in financial living between the two).
