a pedestrian was killed crossing hereA Triboro Coach Q23 crosses over from 108th Street for the Continental Avenue portion of its run long. It starts way up by LaGuardia Airport in East Elmhurst and has a fairly normal run along 108th Street as it passes through Corona and Northern Forest Hills. Once it leaves Continental, however, on the south side of the LIRR, things get very wierd. It loops around itself it spots, like a dog chasing its tail, ending up in a long one-way loop around Metroplitan Avenue, Woodhaven Blvd and Union Tpke before it finally returns to its normal north-south routes. Cautionary signs are all over the place below, as impatient pedestrians mass just off the curb in anticipation of a light change, heedless to the possibility, however remote, that a vehicle like that yellow truck might somehow fly out of control and clip them.
