This idea is quite disturbing, arrogant, and obnoxious, and has the potential to be a huge clusterfuck for us.
From a reader:
I think this article that was featured on Gothamist yesterday is EXTREMELY relevant to us in FH.
Can An E Train Extension Mitigate The Coming L Train Shutdown Hell?
I'm sure other members of the community would appreciate if you talked about this in some way... I know that it is just a proposal now, but it could potentially take away our access to the E train (not to mention, one less way for ALL New Yorkers to get to the airport).
Personally, I think it's important for members of our community to be aware that this could end up as a possibility, and we need to be prepared to fight tooth and nail against it. At very least, right now we should be voicing our displeasure so that the MTA knows this plan would come at the expense of our community.
I don't want FH residents to be surprised if this becomes a possibility. I want to make sure we are prepared to fight it. I hope you will spread the message.
