The ongoing Queens West Development project in Long Island City got a little bit greener last week.
New Recreation Space Opens At Queens West
On July 7, developers at the state-owned mixed-use site quietly opened a 1.1-acre recreation space at the corner of 5th Street and 47th Avenue, complete with a field for baseball, football or soccer, as well as a rubber running track.
However, those in L.I.C. waiting for a chance to lounge in the soft, green grass with a good book, think again. The grass here is artificial turf, exclusively for playing ball.
