It might be much harder to get lost in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, thanks to a grant awarded to a group that hopes to improve navigation in the greenspace.
The Design Trust for Public Space — a nonprofit group that sparked conversations about the High Line — gave the Parks Department and the Queens Museum a portion of a $100,000 grant to find ways to help people get around the massive and at times confusing park.
One proposal was to install extra signage, or "wayfinders," to help visitors better navigate the nearly 900-acre greenspace, which is larger than Central Park and to improve the visibility of entrances.
Signage in the park was identified as one of the biggest priorities for the greenspace by the Parks Department.
So signs are the Parks Department's biggest priority at Flushing Meadows? Really?
