Parking lot will stay

Kew Gardens residents wary of losing precious-few parking spaces to a sprawling new mixed-use facility near the courthouse can put their fears to rest — for now.

After seeking bids for over eight months, the city shelved its proposal last month to raze the parking garage near the Kew Gardens Courthouse and replace it with an enormous new facility featuring extra office space, apartments, even a high school.

The decision came after the Economic Development Corporation’s “request for proposals” failed to spark enough interest from developers to undertake the project.

There's a subway right there. Why do they need a garage? Oh yeah, jury duty doesn't care if you live along the E line.
