As we mentioned in August, the discussion of trolley lines to service underserved areas of Brooklyn and Queens has been gaining momentum over the past couple of years, including the recent announcement of a $259,000 Department of Transportation feasibility study. Mayor Bloomberg has shown interest in a possible streetcar system, and The Brooklyn Eagle reported recently that Brooklyn Congresswoman Nydia VelÃ¡zquez is taking action: “In her request for funding for the Fiscal Year 2010 surface transportation bill, she has included $10 million for ‘design and construction of a light rail system along the Brooklyn waterfront from Red Hook to Downtown Brooklyn, Brooklyn, N.Y.’”
