Join guides from the Friends of the QueensWay, for a 2.5 mile walk alongside the northern section of this proposed “cultural greenway” that will transform a long abandoned rail line running from Rego Park south to Ozone Park. This tour will start in Forest Hills and end in Forest Park, with brief walks on the rail bed (wear long pants, and hiking or walking shoes), but much of it will be on adjoining city streets.
