The QueensWay will transform a 3.5-mile portion of the abandoned Rockaway Rail Line into an elevated pedestrian and bicycle pathway connecting the communities of Rego Park, Forest Hills, Richmond Hill, Glendale, Woodhaven, and Ozone Park. The project will provide much-needed public green space, recreation areas, opportunities for safe alternative commuting, and community spaces to celebrate the cultural diversity of Queens.

The Trust for Public Land has worked with Friends of the QueensWay, community members, and the City of New York to develop a conceptual design for the QueensWay. We completed the initial round of a participatory design process with communities, and met with members of the City Council and New York State elected officials. The firms WXY architecture + urban design and dlandstudio have created a conceptual design for the QueensWay, which can be viewed at thequeensway.org.
