Closing Bell: Save the G Train Extension!


    The effort to save the G train extension into Park Slope, Windsor Terrace, and Kensington got plenty of coverage today. Williamsburg District Leader Lincoln Restler started the campaign yesterday and it’s already gained more than 1,000 signatures. The extension happened in 2009, allowing residents of Red Hook, Park Slope, Windsor Terrace and Kensington to hop over to Fort Greene, Clinton Hill, Bed-Stuy, Williamsburg, Greenpoint, and Queens without going into Manhattan. District Leader Restler tells us: “While the MTA has been increasing fares and cutting services – especially bus lines like the B69 that connect Brooklyn neighborhoods – the G train extension has been a single bright spot. Considering the economic benefits of the G train extension and the modest costs associated for the MTA, I cannot understand why they will not confirm their intentions to make the G train extension permanent.”
