The New York City Subway: Where you can commit suicade with ease.

The dysfunctional MTA shouldn't done this a long time ago.

The reason Queens has been hearing about this elevator for so many years is that this is one of the 100 key stations the MTA agreed to make accessible by 2020 in a lawsuit settlement around the time the ADA was passed in the 1990's. They've been dragging their feet and still have 13 stations to go before the deadline.

You would need an elevator to get to the ticketing/turnstyles and then Astoria Blvd. has inbound, outbound and central platforms, so you'd have to have 4 elevators.

How about using the billboard to explain how to best navigate that dangerous intersection such as no left turns from the center lane and not blocking the box? I use that intersection daily and it is a clusterf*ck. Any clarity with potential fines for illegal turns, etc should help.

I totally understand the need for elevators at MTA elevated subway stations. However, do there really need to be one elevator for each entrance, a total of four elevators for each station? I believe this may be a little excessive.

A turning point to say the least: How hypocritical.

By the end of this century, almost all of the MTA subway stations will be ADA accessible.

Such everyday bureaucracy by the MTA.

This election year could make or break an incumbent or a candidate, specifically on the issue of mass transit.

At this rate, the entire subway system will be accessible once the sea level rise flood NYC.

Out with the small businesses, in with the big businesses possibly.

It always happens everyday in a aging subway system like this.

Any major billboard sign in a democratic nation like this is always a major distraction to our short attention spans.

Oh no, what will we do without crab cakes Benedict? Oh that's right, get them somewhere else. Somewhere not over rated. Peace!

Why I deserve a trip to Cancun: Although I love Astoria very much, it\'s always nice to get away for a bit! And when I leave, I always appreciate coming back even more :o)

Why I deserve a Cancun trip: Recently I lost my editorial job after seven years with a company. It has been a very stressful time. My boyfriend is also in the academy for the FDNY and we can\'t really afford a much-needed trip on our own.
