A study released yesterday revealed that the QueensWay– the High Line-esque linear park and cultural greenway proposed for a 3.5-mile stretch of abandoned railway in central Queens– will cost $120 million, give a boost to the local economy, and provide nearby residents with a safer place to walk and bike. But opponents of the project say central Queens already has an abundance of park land, there’s no plan in place to raise the needed funds, and the local community isn’t that into it. We want to hear what you think: Can the QueensWay follow in the footsteps of the High Line?
