    Born and raised in Maspeth, Woodside and Astoria. I popped out a few kids, so now I'm in LI, but I'm with you folks in spirit.

    So Queens Supporters, what is your thoughts on the talk of a stadium at Aqueduct?

    There is a "NYCFC Stadium at Aqueduct" Facebook page in support of the idea.

    All for it. It's a solid location that's in dire need of development. the stadium would have a very positive economic impact in surrounding areas. Ease of access to Nassau and Suffolk. Not that it matters too much, but it's also very close to JFK which could benefit visiting teams and fans.

    Not sure if you guys are ticket holders or not. I remember a few months back they sent out a survey ( I believe it was for season ticket holders) and there were quite a few questions about a future stadium. I wonder what a majority of those answers were and if they are taking any of those answers into account for anything. Personally and maybe it's because I live here but, I think Queens would be the best location for the stadium in terms of drawing in fans and or people who might be interested and come check out the MLS.

    Not happy about it. I live in Astoria and do not have a car. It will take me about an hour and 25 minutes to get there while having to take 3 different subways. It is exactly the same ride to get to Red Bull Arena. Yankee stadium takes about 40 minutes. Much better commute for me.

    If it goes through I will have to find someone to carpool with I suppose. Kinda sucks.

    I agree with you if it was Northwestern Queens like Flushing or even LIC. The people from the Bronx, Westchester and Jersey will have a really bad commute getting all the way out to South Ozone Park

    Like I mentioned in the stadium thread, if this means that they can build a SSS easier, faster and cheaper, then I'm 100% behind it. No location will be perfect for everyone. Being in a SSS as soon as possible is very important.

    I agree 100% with what everyone is saying. MTA sucks. I've been taking it most of my life from going to HS to now when I go to work. If you live here you already know that. It's going to take me close to 2 hrs to get to yankee stadium.
    BTOTO920- you can take the r to Roosevelt and take the Q53 all the way to Rockaway Bvld. Regardless, yes the MTA sucks at it's job, but I don't understand everyone complaining like they just moved here yesterday. As I've said in the past, no matter where the stadium is, if it's in the same borough I live in, if it's at Yankee Stadium or anywhere else in NYC, I'll have season tickets and I'll be at as many games as possible.

    That is why I am so for the Aqueduct location, it will get the stadium built quickest since the site is already zoned for sports, the less red tape the better. The longer they take to finalize a spot, the higher the chances they will be playing musical chairs with host venues for the foreseeable future.

    Like people have said, some people will be upset the stadium isn't in their borough, others will be thrilled it's close to home. Aqueduct isn't my ideal location, but it's in the boroughs and won't take 5yrs of litigation, environmental impact studies, low-income housing and a host of other things that every developer is held hostage to in this city.

    I', in Brooklyn, so neither Bronx or Queens is my borough, from growing up in southern Queens, and going to Jr. High in Ozone Park and elementary school in Howard Beach, I know how much good the venue and team could do there.

    The South Bronx has Yankee Stadium
    Northern Queens has Citi Field & Arthur Ashe
    Manhattan has MSG
    Brooklyn has Barclays center & MCU Park
    Staten Island has Richmond County Park

    Give Southern Queens there time to shine.

    All you need to do is take the Q53 or Q52 that will leave you at Liberty Av and meet me at the bar before we March down Rockaway Blvd!
