NEW YORK — Where will it run exactly? And how will it work as it weaves through traffic in New York City?

Mayor Bill de Blasio expressed his support for a streetcar line that would connect Queens and Brooklyn in his state of the city speech.

NYC Deputy Mayor Alicia Glen spoke with PIX11's Greg Mocker about some of the details.

She says the current map is still being finalized and they're confident increased property values would cover the $2 billion cost.

Mocker asked her why the city wants to get in the transit business? Deputy Mayor Glen says the new ferry system is on schedule to begin in 2017.

Some in the transit community question about the streetcar's connection to other transit options and a bigger plan.
