Queens Boulevard is a major arterial route that passes through various neighborhoods in Queens - hundreds of thousands of people live, work and shop along this boulevard every day. Nicknamed the "Boulevard of Death", since 2013, eight people have been killed and 218 pedestrians and cyclists injured on Queens Boulevard. Join us in remaking Queens Boulevard into a safe, beautiful and accessible boulevard for everyone in Queens.
- Pedestrians struggle to cross Queens Boulevard on a daily basis. Add safer crosswalks, exclusive time to cross the street before cars turn and wider medians so pedestrians can safely cross the street.
- Cyclists share the road with cars that speed and double park. Add protected bike lanes so new cyclists will have a safe space to commute to work and small businesses in their neighborhood.
- Queens Boulevard is a wide stretch of asphalt with very little greenery. Add greenery and street furniture like street art and benches, so we can make Queens Boulevard hospitable, beautiful, friendly, and a destination.
Changes like these work. Safer streets encourage people to walk and bike more, shop more locally, and give a higher quality of life in their neighborhood.
Queens Boulevard does not have to be the Boulevard of Death. We can turn into the Boulevard of Life, but only with your help. I look forward to your support.
