To The Editor:
There is even more to “Sunnyside: Shining in the Shadows of the Skylines” (Michael Stahl – May 7). Any development plans utilizing the air-rights over Sunnyside Yards can also benefit by the proposed MTA Long Island Rail Road Eastside Access project construction of a passenger station at Sunnyside Yard. It will provide access to both Sunnyside and the adjacent growing Long Island City business and residential community along with neighboring Astoria and Woodside.
There has been incredible residential and commercial growth in neighborhoods adjacent to Sunnyside Yard. Imagine the benefits to both residents and commuters. Consider the possible travel options including reverse commuting if a Metro-North Rail Road connection from the New Haven line via the Bronx and Hell Gate Bridge to Grand Central Terminal reached beneficial use along with LIRR Eastside Access and both provide service to a Sunnyside Yard station by 2023.
