Complete Streets (r)Evolution: Jackson Heights and Elmhurst

Walk with us in Elmhurst, a bustling neighborhood with historic architecture, where busy Queens Boulevard is being re-imagined into a “complete street” for all users. Next door, Jackson Heights, a 1920’s planned community and home to “Little India,” is undergoing a transformation as streets are converted to plazas for needed public space, and traffic calming improvements make this family-centric neighborhood safer for kids and adults alike to walk and play.

Every day, all over the city, Transportation Alternatives is working to revitalize New York City’s neighborhoods and restore a vibrant culture of street life. This walk features one of the many communities where T.A. advocacy brings safe and healthy streets for all.
