This chapter discusses the history of one of the New York City subway system’s most heavily traveled lines. The early plans called for a line that extended much further into Queens. A look is taken as to why the full line was never built, despite the best efforts of many people in Queens. Emphasis is also given to the impact of the construction of the Flushing line had upon the development of the northern part of the Borough of Queens.
