Re: Lower Montauk Branch Passenger Rail Study (Final Report 2018) could cost over $2 Billion

So you are going to say it's "because of the people that live there"? That's BS.
There are plenty of stations in similar demographic neighbohoods which get great service. Wyandanch comes to mind, but even so, Central Islip, Bay Shore, and there are many others.
Bellport on the Montauk Branch was slated to be closed in the 1998 attack of station closings. Bellport being a classic "north and south of the tracks" area has one of the poorest neighbohoods in Suffolk County on the north side of the tracks there (and where the station is located), and also has an extremely affluent wealthy "Hamptons like" area as you go south. It is indeed the north of the track, poor area that saved that station in 1998 and got it rebuilt and remaining open. So stop with the "oh it's demographics" crap, as there is no race involved in it.
