Rockaway Beach Line Support

Dear Editor:

Absolutely Great news. Congressman Jerrold Nadler supports the reopening of the Queens Rockaway Beach line.

Queens Community Board 5 also supports using the Queens RBL for faster transportation.

Yahoo! This is wonderful. Faster transportation for all of Queens so we can improve our lives. The Queens RBL will help more people and unite the Borough of Queens and the City. Our population is growing and our public transit system must expand to address the dangerous, overcrowded and unreliable buses, trains and roadways. Trains are faster, cleaner and more efficient than a bus. We need to expand our train system.

Queens needs more jobs and better schools and a stronger economy for all. Faster transportation will stimulate investments, development and healthy growth. It's a shame that the train was taken from us for more than 60 years. Justice and equality will prevail.

Two and a half hours to cross over Queens by public transportation is ridiculous. It's about time that decent people stand up and correct this injustice.

Thank you to all our supporters especially Congressman Nadler, Queens Community Board 5 and Assemblyman Phil Goldfeder. Queens needs to move faster and forward.

Please remember to promote and support the Queens Rockaway Ferry and faster transit options for Queens. It's a fast, beautiful and amazing ride.

God Bless all of you. Please ask your family and friends and commuters to sign our petitions to support the Reactivation of the Queens Rockaway Beach Line, the New Queens Crosstown, eliminate the toll on the Queens Cross Bay Veterans Memorial Bridge for everyone and expand the Queens Rockaway Ferry.

PHILIP MCMANUS
