WILLIAMSBURG — City representatives will visit North Brooklyn next week to get feedback about plans for the Brooklyn-Queens Connector (BQX), a streetcar being pushed by the mayor's office, which will travel along the waterfront from Sunset Park in Brooklyn to Astoria in Queens.
"We've gotten a lot of really, really helpful feedback," said NYCEDC spokesman Anthony Hogrebe.
The goal is to "really get very, very specific and granular input from community members about their current commute patterns — where they travel to, when they travel, the types of input that really can only come from people who live and work in neighborhood every day," he added.
The city is gleaning community feedback that it will incorporate into a more detailed proposal for the project later this year. The project is still in its early stages and construction isn't slated to begin until 2020.
