NY1 Video: “Hollis Hills Resident Pushes for Greenway Extension”

NY1 has posted a news story on Joby Jacob who is trying to extend the Queens Greenway section of the Long Island Motor Parkway.

Jacobs of Hollis Hills has developed a website Motor Parkway East.  As described on the website, the plan is to extend the Greenway to Little Neck Parkway:

Today the Motor Parkway ends abruptly at Winchester Avenue.

It is not easy for pedestrians, joggers, or bicyclists to get to the Motor Parkway from Glen Oaks, Douglaston, Floral Park, Bellaire, Bellerose, Little Neck and New Hyde Park.

That means our friends and neighbors must use a car (not an option for everyone) or they must reconnoiter busy main streets which are not friendly to pedestrians, joggers, or bicyclists.
•East / West on Union Turnpike
•North / South on Commonwealth Boulevard
•North / South on Little Neck Parkway

Our plan is very simple - it turns out the original Motor Parkway (before it was torn down) would have connected many of our neighbors to the part of the Motor Parkway that still exists.

Imagine, a green-corridor that creates a Super-Greenway. It would connect educational institutions, hospitals, cultural institutions, parks and the Eastern Queens community as never before.

Sign this petition.
