Open House New York invites you to a presentation about the plans to transform an abandoned rail line in Central Queens into the QueensWay, a new 3.5-mile linear park, with Susannah Drake, Principal, DLANDstudioAndy Stone, Director of the New York City Program at The Trust for Public Land; and Travis Terry, Steering Committee Founding Member, Friends of the QueensWay .

Located on an abandoned stretch of the LIRR Rockaway Beach Branch, the QueensWay will include biking, jogging, and walking paths and will create a link to Forest Park for thousands of Queens residents from six underserved neighborhoods. Once completed, the 47-acre park will also feature upgraded facilities for local little leagues, schools, and neighboring communities.

Projects in Planning is a series of OHNY programs that explores the design and planning process of a single project during its early stages of development and construction. Projects in Planning is made possible with sponsorship support from StreetEasy.
