Rego Park

Postby interface76 » Tue Jul 17, 2018 8:23 pm

On Sunday, while riding in from Forest Hills (thank you CityTicket!), I did my usual standing in the vestibule of the M7 I was in (no point it getting settled into a seat for that amount of time), and paid my respects as we rumbled past Whitepot Junction (or what's left of it at this point and more fill and gravel get dumped).

I couldn't help but wonder as we hit 63rd Drive what would have happened to Rego Park, had it not been a casualty of the Rockaway Beach Branch. I wonder if it would have maintained decent patronage had the platforms been against the main line tracks... It seems to have similar qualities to both Forest Hills and Kew Gardens, and the way the Queens Blvd subway line gets more and more full...

File it under "things we'll never know", I suppose...
