Open House New York – Projects in Planning: QueensWay
Tuesday, January 31, 2017 7:00 pm
Event hosted by: Open House New York
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.
Registration is open for OHNY Members and the general public. OHNY members may register for themselves and a guest. Admission is free for members, $10 for guests. Tickets for the general public are $10. Reservations are required as space is limited.
