Finally, the long-awaited improvements are coming to our stretch of Queens Blvd.
Bike lanes, more space for pedestrians, hopefully some much-needed beautification, and a safer roadway in general for pedestrians.
Hey, anything will be an improvement for this inappropriate major thoroughfare that runs smack through a residential neighborhood.
Anything that makes it more pedestrian-friendly and slows down the nutty drivers as they race through our neighborhood is a long time in coming. This is New York City, after all. It's not Wichita. If you want to live the automobile lifestyle, I have a nice house in suburbia to sell you.
