Welcome to the New York Architecture Diary, your essential guide to architecture exhibitions and events taking place across the city.
Join guides from The Trust for Public Land and Friends of the QueensWay for a 2.5 mile walk alongside the northern section of this proposed "cultural greenway" that will transform a long abandoned rail line running from Forest Hills/Rego Park south to Ozone Park. If built, the QueensWay could highlight the many cultures of Queens (one of the most diverse urban areas in America) and provide pedestrian and bike linkages.
This tour will last 2.5 hours and include a walk on the rail bed, through a ravine in Forest Park (wear long pants, and hiking or walking shoes), but much of it will be on city streets adjoining the QueensWay. Cost: $30 / $20 Members
