NYTIP – extending the nyc subway, part 5: southeast queens

Welcome back to my NYTIP series! The borough of Queens, despite its size, has little subway coverage in its eastern half.

UPDATE (09.15.2020): Post updated with a more recent population density map.

Welcome back to my NYTIP series! Nowhere is the need for subway extension more pronounced than Eastern Queens, which has very little subway service at all. In this post, which is the first of two covering Eastern Queens extensions, I will explore options for extending the Flushing line (today’s 7 train) to fill the gap in Northeast Queens. This post also explores westward extension options.
