Woodhaven’s first Weekend Walk is set for June 1 on Jamaica Avenue, sponsored by the neighborhood’s Business Improvement District.

Four blocks of Jamaica Avenue from 85th Street to 89th Street will be closed to traffic and more than 20 stores located on the stretch will have tables out front offering samples and games. Everything is free.

“The idea is to attract people not just from the neighborhood but the areas nearby to come to Jamaica Avenue and shop,” said BID Executive Director Raquel Olivares.

The city underwrites more than 120 car-free Weekend Walks each summer, mostly in Brooklyn and Manhattan. They are less common in Queens, however.
