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, DLANDstudio; Andy 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
Open House New York’s Projects in Planning series explores a single project in its early stages of development to deepen public awareness and understanding of notable developments on the boards across the five boroughs, and how the project is shaping the city’s future growth and accessibility.
