Re: your article regarding the proposed Interborough Express (IBX) on pages 62 and 63 of the Spring 2023 edition of the Juniper Berry:

You state “…if they proceed with their initial proposal, it’s Middle Village that would be in jeopardy.”

This is the most serious threat to Middle Village in a century! If we can’t stop the project, we should at least try to limit its negative impact on Middle Village by fighting to eliminate the Eliot Ave stop. [The proposed IBX could interconnect with the NYC Subway (“M” line) at Metropolitan Ave. or Fresh Pond Road and then route around Middle Village via the tracks/right-of-way behind (to the west of) the RENTAR property.]

Enclosed please find a donation to the Juniper Park Civic Association in the amount of $100.00 to help fight this very serious threat to Middle Village.

Thank you.

Very truly yours,
