Re: ''Transit advocates urge Hochul to scrap LaGuardia AirTrain''

Hmm. This doesn't change your basic argument about the Bronx, but your reference material looks dubious to me. The USGS topo maps on topozone.com show that Jerome Ave crosses the 150' coutour just at Kingsbridge.

Much more importantly, the map shows that Astoria Blvd crosses the 40 foot contour, not the 30 foot contour, immediately east of crossing the subway line.

And furthermore, 31st street is dropping rapidly as it heads north. Not that much south of Astoria Blvd (a third of a long block south, in fact), it crosses the 50 foot contour.
