With debate swirling around competing plans for the defunct Rockaway Branch rail line, the Woodhaven Residents' Block Association ensured that the people of Woodhaven had an opportunity to develop and voice an informed opinion on the matter.
On Saturday, Sept. 29, at 1 p.m., the WRBA hosted a special forum dedicated exclusively to the question of what to do with the railroad tracks, which run along 98th Street in Woodhaven. The meeting featured presentations by a speaker supporting each of the two leading proposals: returning the tracks to use for an active train line, or converting the route into a walkway and bike path dubbed The QueensWay, followed by a session where they took questions and heard the opinions of the residents in attendance.
In Part I, railway activist John Rozankowski advocates for the reactivation of the rail line through Woodhaven.
In Part II, QueensWay supporter Andrea Crawford advocates for the creation of the QueensWay through Woodhaven.
In Part III, the residents engage both sides in questions, answers and debate.
