The mapping of the New York City Subway system continues. Here are the panoramic views of the 10 subway stations/stops/entrances on the Rockaway Peninsula in Queens New York, where there are only TWO (2) accessible stations. That means that since the Rockaway Peninsula is a Level 1 evacuation zone, every must evacuate in the event of a major storm. If someone lives alone, has no family, friends or caregivers, they may be stranded in a life threatening situation. This scenario is obscene and the MTA can do better. Here then are the panoramic views with each station labelled via Google Maps. What is to be gained here? Well, hidden in this task is how to use these services to have your local business or endeavor show up in local search via Google using Google Maps.
It appears that more and more users of Googles’ search engine are performing their search via Google Maps, instead of via Google.com. Since this is the case, it is worth it for local businesses to optimize their business to be found in Google Maps searches.
The Panoramic Views above are of the Mott Ave – Far Rockaway station which is accessible and is the last stop on the A train.
Here are Panoramic Views of the Beach 25 Street – Wavecrest Station. Please note: This station is NOT accessible.
The Panoramic views above are of the Beach 36 St – Edgemere Station. This station is NOT accessible.

Here is the Beach 98 Street – Playland station. This station is NOT accessible.
Here is the Beach 105 Street – Seaside station. This station is NOT accessible.
Here is the Rockaway Park Station – Beach 116 Street station. This station is NOT accessible. There you have the most comprehensive mapping of the Rockaway Peninsula subway stations and entrances. I did not do panoramic views of the platforms since that is useless and the Google Maps views shows that pointer at ground level, so it distorts that information. I dont look at this as work but more like a cardio workout on an early Saturday morning in the spring in New York City. It was fun, the scenery is gorgeous and of course I took pictures and panoramic views of Rockaway Beach, Fort Tilden and Jacob Riis Gate National Park with the horses and all. Stay very tuned for our next series of meetups in the NYC area with a NYC transit accessiblity awareness and correction theme.
