This page isn't notable enough. I don't believe it fits the speedy guidelines, so I'm putting it up for a vote. 郵便箱 04:12, Apr 20, 2005 (UTC)
weak Delete We really need a policy on streets. Maybe someone can fix this up so I can change my vote. Vegaswikian 04:57, 20 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Weakest keep; I agree with Vegaswikian that we need some sort of policy on these. Meelar(talk) 05:25, Apr 20, 2005 (UTC)
Weak keep for reasons stated. However, a 100-mile-long boulevard gets my inner roadgeek drooling. Might do some cleanup on this one myself and alert SPUI while I'm at it. It's "kiddie-wiki" right now, but that's an easy fix. This might turn out to be a good object lesson for SamuraiClinton since he seems interested in "roadcruft." - Lucky 6.9 07:39, 20 Apr 2005 (UTC)
I've done some fixing up. It could be merged with Montauk Highway (which it was once part of), though it might be long enough to keep alone. --SPUI (talk) 18:24, 20 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Keep. I think articles about roads and streets get deleted far to often and far too easily. -Casito⇝Talk
Definitely keep. Main roads in major cities are always notable and should always be included. If necessary, disambiguate. The policy on streets should be that in a major metropolitan area, any arterial road, or (at least nationally) renowned collector or local road, would be notable. Major metropolitan area should be at least 1-2 million people, or a national capital, or a world-famous city.
Un-encyclopedicness not established. Keep. --Centauri 09:18, 24 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Keep. Absolutely notable boulevard. Why on earth would you want to delete this? Does having this information in Wikipedia make the site somehow worse? I don't get it. Moncrief 22:53, Apr 24, 2005 (UTC)
Keep. There seems to be a consensus that most transportation structures, even train and subway stations, are notable, even if there's nothing interesting to be said about them. That actually makes sense, because they serve as cross-references for geographic data. Hopefully somebody writing an article about something that happens to be near Merrick Boulevard will think stop and crosslink the two articles. That way the article will gradually accumulate cross references that will help people browse geographically-related entries. ¶ I do draw the line at minor streets though, and maybe we need some clear definition of "minor". But Merrick Boulevard clearly is a major artery. ---Isaac R 23:40, 24 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Consensus seems to be keep - maybe we should remove the VFD tag? After all this is an arterial road (although a minor arterial) in one of the most important cities in the world...
We have to wait five days, which is coming up really soon. --SPUI (talk) 04:52, 25 Apr 2005 (UTC)
