So us south bottoms folk will loose some crossings, but the horns will stop blaring. I would rather have the crossings actually, but my property value would prob enjoy the quietness. I live a block away from the main 3 tracks that get used a bunch, and the track on my block is used to move cars around.
I love when they are moving the cars around. A deep boom followed by the whole house rumbling is pretty cool. The horns do not bother me much. I really only notice them when my window is open and I am bedding down. They are really loud though, like really loud. I doubt it messes with my sleep that much and the track noise zonks me out really good.
They reccomend that the D and J street crossings be closed. That should keep the traffic down pretty good. Will make the Jamaica trail a little safer as well. They are gonna wait till the Harris overpass is done before working on the quiet zone north of A street, so I will have to wait for a while.
