The Trust for Public Land, the parks advocacy group that is studying the possibility of building a High Line-like park along the right of way of the Rockaway Beach Long Island Rail Road line, is holding three public workshops on the plan.
The first workshop will be held on Wednesday, Nov. 13 from 7 to 9 p.m. at Emanuel Church of Christ, 93-12 91 Ave. in Woodhaven. The second will be on Tuesday, Nov. 19 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Metropolitan Expeditionary Learning School at 91-30 Metropolitan Ave. in Forest Hills and the third will be on Wednesday, Nov. 20 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Ozone Park Senior Center at St. Mary Gate of Heaven Church, 103-02 101 Ave. in Ozone Park.
The Trust for Public Land says the workshops are “an opportunity for community members, business owners and interested individuals to share input and ideas on the design and programming of the QueensWay.”
Besides the park, there are some who want to reactivate the rail line and some, especially in Woodhaven and Forest Hills, who want to the right of way left alone.
