I dont know if you are familiar with the Motor Parkway but decades ago the section from Winchester Blvd to Little Neck Parkway was torn down. (The remaining portion to the east of LNP is now known as 74th Ave).
I have an idea on how to restore (as much as one can) the sections of the Motor Parkway that ran through Creedmoor, the Frank Padavan Campus of the Queens School and the Farm Museum. It would be an opportunity to right a historic wrong and bring back a bit of Queens borough history.
Essentially since all these properties are government owned, the only thing keeping this area from becoming a pedestrian, running and bike path like the rest of the Motor Parkway is government inertia. I've tried several times to get Queens politicians to pay attention to my idea, but I've always gotten the polite brush off. So I recently built a website and online petition to get their attention.
Additionally - the reality is left to their own devices the politicians will continue to sell off Creedmoor piece by piece. However, if people could travel through these lands (rather than see them as an obstacle) then they would develop an affection for them and slowly selling off Creedmoor piece by piece would no longer be possible.
I'd love for any feedback you have on this idea.
