Location
Queens Plaza, Long Island City

With the continuing construction boom of both residential and commercial space, Long Island City is projected to house another 20,000 residents by 2020. Can New York City’s already crowded transit system handle the influx? From Queens Plaza, we’ll walk in the shadows of the 7 train along Jackson Avenue down to Vernon Boulevard. Guided by experts in the design and politics of transportation, participants will be challenged to envision how the surrounding infrastructure and streetscapes might change as they tour the area. Following the walk, the group will get local refreshments and discuss how design can maintain pedestrian safety and equity for all users and modes of transport, as the city adapts to serve growing and unknown needs.
