Rockaway Resident from rockaway beach says:
this has been happening on weeknights for almost 2 years now.....WHEN WILL IT END!!!! you are holding residents hostage and severely limiting out ability to do things off the peninsula or even maintain jobs with late hours without an additional 45-1hr commute to go up to cross bay and come back down
