Why your neighborhood is full of Queens Crap
"The difference between dishonest and honest graft: for dishonest graft one worked solely for one's own interests, while for honest graft one pursued the interests of one's party, one's state, and one's personal interests all together." - George Washington Plunkitt

Oh will this make me happy! A lot less cabs on the Van Wyck.
yet another high speed rail link to wizz past SE queens without a stop there just to rub it in the face of the working people of NYC that the government doesn't give 2 craps about them, only about tourists and businessmen.
Or Bloomberg to SE Queens DROP DEAD!
I agree that this is a waste of money, and about the lack of transit in SE Queens. The Merrick Boulevard "BRT" bus improvements (see this 9MB PDF file) won't be enough.
In 1929 there was a proposal for three new elevated trains serving SE Queens: one along Liberty, 105th, Brinckerhoff and Hollis Avenues, one along 120th Avenue, and one along Van Wyck Boulevard. That was almost eighty years ago, though, and I'm sure things have changed since then.
Starting in 1968 the MTA worked on a plan to connect the E train to the Atlantic Branch of the LIRR, stopping in Rosedale, Laurelton and Locust Manor, but that was abandoned for some reason.
What do you think should be done? If it's a subway extension, where should it go? More express buses? Better "BRT"? Light rail?
(Crapper, I think I got all the links right this time!)
Yes, you got it!
I think it was planned awhile back to make the airtrain a loop from Manhattan to JFK to LaGuardia, back to Manhattan. The LGA connections were nixed, but this may be a continuance of that old plan.
