Thanks to We Heart friend Tamara Reynolds, we caught wind of this very interesting article by the NY Times, Brooklyn to Queens, but Not by Subway – Imagining a Streetcar Line Along the Waterfront. It’s basically an argument for putting a street car route along the waterfront from Red Hook—IKEA, where there is a ferry—through DUMBO, Williamsburg, Greenpoint, LIC—all of which have access to the East River Ferry—up to Astoria Park. This route would be a “desire line,” which is essentially a route determined by the people who live and visit a place rather than through abstract analysis. It’s essentially a user-created path. With all the interest in the waterfront in Queens and BK, it’s understandable that people want better and more convenient access to these areas.
