Eastern Queens has one of the best park systems in New York City, but many of our residents can’t get to these hidden gems because of the unsafe conditions around them.
We’re asking for a child safe path along along Oceania/210th Street from the Vanderbilt Motor Parkway going north. This will allow better access to the mountain bike trails and connect to 3 local schools. The lower section of the path would hug the boarder of Cunningham Park up to the Long Island Expressway. North of that would be an on street path connecting all the way to the stores on Norther Boulevard.
We believe these improvements would turn a street that encourages excessive speeding (and has produced multiple fatalities) into a safe route to school. Please help us by asking your neighbors to sign this petition:
