Re: Maps and Problems with Rockaway ROW

But their yards do, right? If I am a NIMBY and you want to run your train right by where I say my kids will be playing, what do you think I will be telling my city council member?

The old Rockaway is wider than some existing LIRR lines (use the same site to trace the line through St Albans), as well as others.
Any kids that are or have been playing on the ROW were tresspassing, even if it has been abandoned. As for backyards, many existing (and busy) LIRR lines but right up against people's homes. Again, trace many of the existing LIRR lines in Queens (and even Nassau), but especially Queens).
