Re: LIRR East Side Access / Roosevelt Island F Station

Posted by WillD on Mon Oct 22 15:41:17 2007, in response to LIRR East Side Access / Roosevelt Island F Station, posted by Roosevelt island 360 on Mon Oct 22 13:17:23 2007.

What makes you think the LIRR trains passing through 63rd St Lower Level tunnel would be any less crowded than the F? If the MTA goes and spends perhaps another billion dollar to build a station on the lower level tunnel you may find that it doesn't provide any better service. In that case instead of competing with commuters from Jamaica for seats on the F you'd be competing with commuters from Ronkonkoma, Babylon, Long Beach or other points on the LIRR.

Maybe Roosevelt Island should look into having a staircase or pedestrian elevator up onto the Queensboro Bridge pedestrian walkway installed to provide better off-island transportation and more direct access to Manhattan.
