Even before our public transportation savior Andy Byford showed up to reform the MTA, the MTA shouldn't finish the CBTC signal system along the 7 a few years ago.

Still no word from the City on how they intend to accommodate the thousands of additional commuters this would add to Queens subway lines, which are already operating at maximum capacity.

And $5M could be a big deal for the MTA, if it wasn't for any corruptive surcharge evasion there.

A more crowded 7 train anyone?

JVB knew about this months ago. Just like Dromm with the Pan Am, Crowley with the Maspeth Holiday Inn. They claim they didn't know, but DHS Commissioner said otherwise, when he became sick and tired of Crowley berating him. These hotel owners a making out like bandits. They're charging full rate and not giving the same services as a hotel --no maid service etc.. This homeless shelter scheme is created to rape the taxpayer. Think about it.. why is the city spending almost 5000/mo to house a homeless family in a dinky hotel room, when they can rent an apt for 1/2 that? Queens is getting hit with the most homeless shelter, as Queens has the most hotel/motels outside of Manhattan.

Up to $500 in fines for what he's been doing to tenants?? That's barely a slap on the wrist and hardly a deterrent. They should go after the landlord, as this man is their employee.

When are they gonna spray the Ridgewood areas

#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.

I guess that the MTA played a critical role in rising rent prices after all, such as Chicago.

They need to recover all the stuffs that he has stolen. Where is his picture?

A catch-22: Since more and more people are living in NYC, especially in newer residential buildings, in this case, assuming that it is finished, it will put a major burden on the overcrowding situation on the 7 train service, even when CBTC (or communication-based train control) will be implemented this September. Don't forget the local buses that served the neighborhood as well.
