The movement of the proposed route of the LGA train from near the Grand Central Parkway to near the boundary of the Flushing Bay Promenade didn’t improve matter any. As Nuala pointed out in the article–““We love the Promenade; you’re taking that away,” she said. “We love our view of Flushing Bay; you’re taking that away. We love our 7 train; you’re taking that away.”
