MET HUB – Help Design First Phase of the QueensWay

In 2013 and 2014, community residents participated in a planning process, leading to the October 2014 release of The QueensWay Plan—a proposal backed by key local elected officials to transform a 3.5-mile abandoned former rail corridor into a linear park and trailway.
Since then, The Trust for Public Land (working with Friends of the QueensWay—a local volunteer group) has received funding commitments from the NY State Office of Parks and Assemblyman Andrew Hevesi to prepare a complete design for a half-mile Phase One of the QueensWay—the Metropolitan Hub, from Metropolitan Avenue to Union Turnpike.
COMMUNITY RESIDENTS ARE INVITED TO PARTICIPATE IN A DESIGN WORKSHOP TO GENERATE IDEAS FOR THIS IMPORTANT FIRST PHASE OF THE QUEENSWAY.
