The city on Friday announced its first round of street closures designed to open up more space to pedestrians and bicyclists, with the goal of allowing for more social distancing during the fight against the coronavirus.
Five stretches of roadway in Queens will be closed to motor vehicles — or “opened” in the city’s parlance — from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day. Three of them are in Forest Park, one in Flushing Meadows Corona Park and one in Long Island City. They total 2.7 miles out of the 7.14 miles of streets that will be affected citywide.
