From LIQ City:
There’s...an unintentional ‘bird sanctuary’, a small pond created by the rainwater on the portion of Queenswest slated for development of four more high-rises. Someday. In the meantime, that swath of land has been a stopping point for various migratory bird flocks. Lots of geese and heron.
Too bad it's only temporary. Queens could use a permanent nature preserve along its western shore.
