There will be plenty of winners and plenty of losers on the public transportation front in the borough of Queens, that's for sure, especially for this year.


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.





Catch-22: More freight trains on tracks = Less trucks on the road = Better air quality for all = Improved economic activity for all = No more public transportation access.

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.














Does this light rail proposal along the lower montauk branch from LIC to Jamaica will spur commercial, economic, residential and retail development along the corridor? You will be the judge of that.


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!




Hate to be the party pooper but there are many people trying to do this out of their homes. They do not have business licenses, do not pay taxes, do not get health inspections and do not have a legitimate kitchen to do business. They charge people very expensive prices but they are illegal businesses. It might be cute when you are a teenager but when you are dealing with food, there are laws that protect legal businesses and consumers. The cakes looks lovely though.


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!














They need to change it soon. There are addresses in Myrtle Ave that are in Ridgewood but pointing to Glendale when you type in Google search



Do they have any idea the burden this will place on local businesses? I'll have to update dozens of documents, business cards, etc. as well as make changes to hundreds of website listings which will take weeks to accomplish.










Pedro, Actually the New York & Atlantic Railway has a much worse accident record than other railroads in its class. Newsday recently reported that since 2007 NYAR had 43 accidents/incidents compared to an average of 15 accidents/incidents for railroads in its class. Its accident/incident record is much worse than LIRR's own safety record. The Federal Railroad Administration's safety investigation of NYAR discovered that NYAR's practice was operating freight trains with unqualified crew. NYAR is a closely held private company. NYAR owns almost nothing -- a couple of Maintenance of Way trucks, their office equipment, one locomotive. NYAR wouldn't exist without their use of a public railroad and public subsidies. Public subsidies NYAR receives include new locomotives purchased with state funding, and millions in new infrastructure that is only used by NYAR. NYAR abused the public trust, broke federal law, cut corners, put public safety at risk to make more money for their two owners. NYAR's owners hide behind their money and connections and pay a lobbyist to talk to the press. You look at the repair NYAR made at Metropolitan Ave. and it's a cheap asphalt repair. For years NYAR didn't even do regular maintenance, damaging vehicles that had to use their crossings -- until the FRA had NYAR under the microscope and the railroad was concerned about renewing the Transfer Agreement. MTA and LIRR need to find another operator or operate their own freight railroad, as they did in the past.


Like any other commuter rail or freight operator across the northeast, I am not generally surprised there.















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








2017: The year that will be determine which project(s) will be the winner(s) and which one(s) will be the loser(s): Either the Queensrail, the Queensway, the SBS, or the NIMBYs?

I live in Glendale on 66th Street and Myrtle Ave. I work in Glendale, at Coldwell Banker Kueber located on 67th Street and Myrtle Avenue. I\'m originally from Williamsburg Brooklyn, and lived there before the gentrification occurred. We used to have the small business, friendly neighbor feel back in the days. Today if you are in your early 20\'s to mid-30\'s, that is the neighborhood to be in. I still go to church at least once a month in Williamsburg Brooklyn and two of my children still go to school there, but I will admit though that I am very happy to be raising my children in Glendale, Queens. This is a community where people get to know you, and where the small business, neighborhood feel still exists. I love it here. I feel safe letting my kids go play basketball with their friends at the Glendale Playground on Central Ave between 70th and 71st Street (aka Central Park to the local kids). I don\'t worry when they go to The Shops at Atlas Park to catch a movie with their friends. I love eating at Zum\'s, the Avenue, Edison Place, Pisa Pizza, the New York Grill, or picking up a sandwich from Stop One on 66th Place and Myrtle. I love that I can walk into just about any business here and be greeted by my first name. I\'m also a board member of the Glendale Kiwanis, so I\'ve gotten to know a lot of the people responsible for the behind-the-scenes decisions that keep our community events going (the Halloween Parade on Myrtle Ave, the Christmas Tree lighting by Zum Stammtisch, the Veterans Day and Memorial Day events, the Glendale Kiwanis Scholarship event, Community Day at The Shops at Atlas Park, the Bell Ringing at Stop and Shop, etc.). Because of how involved the community is, my real estate office is an official drop off site for Toys-for-Tots, food to support the local pantries, and the unofficial hangout for all the local business owners who visit us to share thoughts, concerns and ideas over a cup of coffee or a glass of wine. This is a great place to be and I\'m glad my 7 Rosario children get to experience this first hand. Come visit me sometime. My office is located at 67-13 Myrtle Avenue, Glendale NY. No appointment needed. You can also reach me on my cell phone at 917-945-4211 any time. [George L. Rosario, Real Estate Salesperson at Coldwell Banker Kueber, the Rosario Shalomayev Team / Glendale Resident / www.GeorgeRosario.com / #glrosario #rosarioshalomayevteam]
