Dear [Friend]

There is an exciting new project in Central Queens called the QueensWay, a plan to build a greenway which would add 50 acres of beautiful space for recreation and cultural programming. You can learn about it on the thequeensway.org, and by signing up for the Friends of the QueensWay (FQW) mailing list, through which you will be notified of community events and planning workshops. You can also join me and thousands of Queens residents in supporting of QueensWay by signing the petition, and liking the FQW facebook page.

 

5. Help Build Community Support

If you live in Queens Community Boards 5, 6, 9 and 10:
