NYSLOF engages in plans to revitalize dormant Queens rail line
NYSLOF participated in a press conference where Queens College released its survey of people who live near the 3.5 mile abandoned Rockaway Beach rail line. Bringing in a new line would connect northern and southern Queens in a way that is not currently possible, and would create a multitude of jobs. Assemblyman Phil Goldfeder and others who want the train reactivated said they have public support. QueensWay boosters, who envision a High Line-type park on the tracks found encouragement in the survey as well.
