Now that I've got your attention, the cobra I was referring to is the cobra street light. This one was knocked down by the construction at the Rego Park Mall.
How is construction progressing? Attached is an aerial view from the top of the nearby 95-25 Queens Boulevard office building. Note the large empty triangle across the street from the future mall. A possible candidate for Greenstreets? Rego Park needs more parks.
Hey, you know what, mazeartist, I'm with you. If Queens is expected to absorb the biggest chunk of the projected 1 million new residents by 2030, we'll need more parks. Heck, we're underserved by them now. And if these folks are saying with a straight face that they expect $100 million for a 4-acre extension of an existing park, then it's not out of line to ask for a green triangle in Rego Park.
