Closing Bell: Astoria Heights Playground Gets Funding for Major Facelift


    The Friends of Astoria Heights Park received good news at the end of last week. Councilman Costa Constantinides and Queens Borough President Melinda Katz were able to secure $1.2 million for a renovation of the Astoria Heights Playground. While the money is in place, Lynn Kennedy, who posted about the news on the group’s Facebook page, cautioned that the renovation could take as long as two years. Nonetheless, planning is under way. Those who are interested in joining a planning committee can attend a meeting with a representative from Game Time Equipment at the park on July 10 at 6:30 pm.
