Re: VHB lands contract for environmental review of proposed Brooklyn Queens Connector

Your definition of walking distance is not that of anyone else

My definition of "walking distance" is 1/2 mile from an existing stop. That's the same threshold that the Department of Education uses to require 3rd graders to walk to school. That comes to a 10 minute walk.

According to the last census, 357,087 people live in census blocks that are within a 1/2 mile of stop of the proposed BQT. 90% of these people also live within 1/2 mile of an existing subway stop. The BQT would provide service to only 35.7K people who currently live in subway transit deserts (beyond 1/2 mile walking distance of a subway).
