Shady shuttle buses parking at Queens Botanical Garden
You may recall that a few months ago, the Flushing Phantom sent in a photo series depicting Downtown Flushing that showed the buses lining up there illegally to shuttle patrons out of the BID and off to Woodbury Commons and Tanger Outlets.
Quite accidentally, I stumbled upon their parking area...at the Queens Botanical Gardens.
The 45 degree view from Google Maps shows that this has been going on for quite some time.
Interestingly, the Queens Botanical Garden says that it charges the following:
"From November 1 to March 31, the Parking Garden is open for special events only. Fee: $5 per vehicle."
Is the Garden renting out parking spaces to these buses in a special arrangement?
