Forest Hills

Select Bus Service = Select BS


















#6 The Original Pizza Sam's When I used to live in Jackson Heights I would order from them all the time. It's nice to see that some things never change.





If only there will be weekly FASTRACK by the MTA one line at a time, then the entire subway system will be good as new within a few decades or so.






Mrs. Browning deserves the recognition and more. She brings so much to the table as far as professionalism, care and respect. The changes she has and continues to implement are a blessing to the Community she serves. I have no doubt she will accomplish even more during her tenure.















A borough wide civil war for the city owned Rockaway Beach Branch: There will be winners ad losers on this war altogether.





A reactivated Rockaway Beach line would be expected to enable 500,000 new weekday daily rides for Woodhaven, Rego Park, Richmond hill and Howard Beach along a corridor woefully underserved by public transportation, and (to address 'high line' fantasies) over provisioned by existing parks. Though it's ridiculous to have to spell this out for those framing 'Queensway' as a means of improving park access, Forest Park access would be dramatically improve were there, you know, train stations on either side of it. This opens up more of queens - even Rockaway - to participating in the 30- and 60-minute midtown commute bubble. Tell your friends - quicker commute means better housing and living conditions for everyone. Queens is crying out for more transit, and this puts a new transit corridor exactly where it needs to be at a fraction of the price because the ROW is completely intact (minus a few bits leased out or unlawfully encroached upon) and it only involves minimal tunneling. If people want to support parks in Queens, they should look no further than the unpolished jewel of the city parks system that is Forest Park. Talk about massive, under-maintained and brimming with potential for attracting visitors. And it wouldn't hurt to have a subway stop in the middle of it to make that happen.










The QueensWay is actually a QueensWall Barrier. Queens has hundreds of acres of parks. We have bike lanes and bike trails and streets that people can ride bikes on. This is QueensWall BS. The number one reason they want this park is to stop the train from uniting Queens. They don't want the train so they made up this ploy to stop it. Do we need more parks that will divide our people with longer commutes? Commuters need to get to work, home, school and to parks with faster and safer transit options. The QueensRail would help us more that a park barrier that keeps people isolated and poor. Expand our subways including the QueensRail.

What an abject was by the Y of an opportunity to teach Jews about Judaism. A seder is an observance of the release of Jews from bondage and slavery in Egypt. How sad that the Y and this rabbi will, once again, violate Jewish laws in their efforts to foster their own secular proclivities. Any Jews thinking of attending should find an Orthodox Jewish synagogue and arrange to attend a proper Jewish seder. You'll be surprised at what you will learn.








Karen Koslowitz, publicly declaring that Donald Trump is not her President shows clearly that this rally for solidarity was nothing but a sham. The country is already sufficiently divided, on the verge of a civil war and THIS is what Karen Koslowitz thinks is appropriate. She, like Congresswoman Meng will not get another vote from me.



I think it's time for the city (and other levels of government) to stop trying to find new things to tax and to find ways to cut the cost of providing essential services. Stop being involved in things that are not part of being a government, such as entertainment venues.





Yeah, think about the cars! #carlivesmatter!

Just want to add, this plan does not subject homeowners to encroachment of their privacy and safety.

That looks just about perfect. No need to go any further!



There will be plenty of winners and plenty of losers when after this year's mayoral election.





On loss of parking at the Crescent Apts, The Friends of QueensWay has gone on record to say the following: Responding to shareholder concerns, the QueensWay consultants did a careful assessment and concluded that a relatively narrow corridor for bikes and pedestrians could be developed without a loss of parking. The QueensWay Plan website states: “Currently, the Forest View Crescent apartments parking lot that is leased from the City runs across the future QueensWay area. The trail would run through a portion of this site with a reconfiguration of the parking lot area with a goal of no loss of parking spaces.” (this text can be located by going to http://thequeensway.org/map/ and clicking on the blue dot adjacent to the building.)

I think this is a tremendous idea and I hope our local political leaders will have the will and foresight to do something innovative in this community. Forest Park is not in a state of good repair and underutilized. Why should Brooklyn, Manhattan and LIC have the beautiful new parks with amazing amenities? Central Queens has loads of families who would benefit from this, as well as seniors who would have a peaceful, car-free, and safe walkway. And our mom and pop shops around Metropolitan might actually get some foot traffic for a change. The need for transportation is an important one but not sure the multi-billion dollar cost of reactivating this rail line, along with the eminent domain and construction issues that will arise, make this a feasible option.


Why doesn't anyone report on the fact that the stretch of land after Union Tpke leading to forest park is actually in fact NOT abandoned and a parking lot for 80+cars that are now going to have to PARK ON THE ALREADY CROWDED STREETS

It's a beautiful set of tracks and will make an amazing park. I recently completed a project to capture the abandoned tracks. Check it out here http://pictures.danishmujeeb.com/exploring-the-abandoned-lirr-train-tracks

Listen to the Queens Public Transit Committee their correct. The reactivation of this Rail Line is MUST! Please we have enough Parks!



Mahony faces a misdemeanor assault charge. Misdemeanor?? Push someone down the stairs and it is a misdemeanor? That's Wrong.

If experience has taught me one thing, it is to pay attention, keep your eyes and ears open. Too many people today seem very aloof, whether they're waiting for the train or on the train itself.

Select BS is going to create more gridlock for everyone including bus riders. Stealing traffic lanes, left turns, bus stops, speed limits, parking and putting bus riders on snowy medians is a recipe for disaster. It's time to get rid of Mayor Zero Vision and Select BS. Who ever our new Mayor is better reopen our roadways, railways, waterways and bring back our bus stops and speed limits. Queens needs faster and safer transportation not lies, gridlock and tickets. Say goodbye Mayor Chaos. Support the Queens Public Transit Committee at 718-679-5309 or www.qptc.org or PhilAMcManus@gmail.com
