Transportation Alternatives will hold its “winter wander” along Queens Boulevard this coming weekend to draw attention to the dangerous conditions on the road, which is known as the “boulevard of death.”
For decades, Queens Boulevard has been considered one of the most dangerous roadways in the five boroughs for its numerous accidents and pedestrians struck by vehicles.
On Dec. 14, Transportation Alternatives’ Queens Activist Committee will lead a walk for residents during which they will discuss the history of the road as well as dangers faced by pedestrians, cyclists and motorists.
The event will kick off at Elmhurst’s New Life Fellowship Church, located at 82-10 Queens Blvd., and will march up to Forest Hills.
Prior to the march, there will be a community discussion on pedestrian safety improvements along the corridor, such as bike infrastructure and dedicated lanes for Select Bus Service (SBS).The event will run from 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. For more information, visit the event’s page at BikeNYC.
