Queens lawmakers urge MTA to reopen Elmhurst Long Island Rail Road station


Congresswoman Grace Meng is receiving support from western Queens lawmakers as she renews her effort to reopen the Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) station in Elmhurst after its closure decades ago. 

In a new letter to LIRR Interim President Catherine Rinaldi, which was also signed by local city and state elected officials, Meng said that reopening the station could be an economic boon for Elmhurst and the surrounding neighborhoods, once again providing its residents access to Manhattan and the rest of Queens.
