The QueensWay plans to convert the long-abandoned LIRR Rockaway Beach Branch into a public park and serve as a link between neighborhoods.

In 2011, a group of residents living along the former LIRR Rockaway Beach Branch, teamed up to advocate for the conversion of the LIRR Rockaway Beach Branch into a new park. The Friends of the QueensWay (FQW) consists of thousands of individuals and organizations all of whom have the goal of converting the long-abandoned property into a public park that can be enjoyed by bikers, walkers, joggers, visitors, tourists, workers and residents in Queens and the rest of the world.

Also in 2011, FQW entered into a partnership with The Trust for Public Land, the nation’s leading nonprofit organization working to create parks and protect land for people. Since then, the two organizations have worked together to gather local input and support, and to develop a plan for the QueensWay.

Since 1962, the 3.5 miles stretch of the LIRR Rockaway Beach Branch has been sitting desolate and been a blight on our communities. Like the Highline in Manhattan, the Bloomingdale Trail in Chicago and the Rose F. Kennedy Greenway in Boston, it is the intention of FQW and The Trust for Public Land to plan the reuse of this property in a way which not only creates an iconic park but also sparks economic and cultural development and improves the quality of life and environment of the communities living adjacent to the line.
