"I thought the Crapper's readers might want to see the deplorable conditions at the Main Street Flushing LIRR Manhattan bound entrance. You are met with black hefty bags filled with lord knows what, mud, piled up cardboard boxes from the market on the corner, and discarded clothes. The site is actually cleaner that it's been. Since Smellovision hasn't been invented yet, you are spared the Chinese food stench.
Since Flushing is the hotspur of the mayor's 9 million by 2030 or bust program, the LIRR to Manhattan gateway should be a flagship type station. I imagine the MTA has been reluctant to rebuild it because a month after any improvements are made, the station would revert to its old condition. The people have what they want there." - Kevin
