Closing Bell: Poll Shows Community Support for the QueensWay


    The Trust for Public Land sent out a poll regarding the QueensWay proposal, which found that a strong majority of respondents in surrounding neighborhoods want the project to move forward. The Daily News reports that 75 percent of respondents supported the plan to turn the elevated railway into a park, with 10 percent opposed. Some residents in Ozone Park and Rockaway want the rail line reactivated for actual transportation options, and Woodhaven residents with homes along the border of the site are strongly opposed to park development. It’s worth mentioning less than 100 residents responded the the poll, with many respondents not knowing about the QueensWay project at all. Currently the Friends of the Queensway is working on a feasibility study of building out the park.
