Too small[edit]

Though the article isn't tiny, it is small and has a narrow purview: Brooklyn streets, 1-101. There isn't any article about the other street grids, for example the Alphabet Plain to the east of this grid, and how they clash and meld. I propose to rename it as simply "Brooklyn streets", make the current article a section, and expand the new article with such material. Jim.henderson (talk) 23:45, 21 May 2008 (UTC)

86th Street[edit]

I've tried to delink 86th Street, which has been deleted, and place the article text within the table, however everything I do seems to screw up the table formatting. The text of the deleted article is:

86th Street is a major four lane street in Brooklyn, New York, running from Shore Road in Bay Ridge to McDonald Avenue. East of 18th Avenue/Cristoforo Colombo Boulevard till 25th Avenue, the BMT West End Line 'el' tracks run overhead; the street loses one lane in each direction through this stretch in order to accommodate the track's pillars. The 86th Street station on the BMT Sea Beach Line is near the eastern end of this street.

If this is added to the table, the edit summary should state it has come from the article 86th Street (Brooklyn) to comply with copyright. Espresso Addict (talk) 00:36, 22 July 2010 (UTC)
