A group called Friends of the Queensway is rallying support to transform a disused Long Island Rail Road track in Kew Gardens into a High Line-style park – and now a sizable grant has pushed them a step closer to their goal. Yesterday, Gov. Cuomo gave the Trust for Public Land $467,000 to study the project and answer questions about structural integrity, site contamination and more. The funds are a much-needed push for the proposed park, and findings from the studies could help support its feasibility and push it towards reality.
