Cant believe the damage around Astoria Park area in Queens from #isaias Photos sent to me by Michael Casella:
We broke ground on a new student-designed playground at PS84Q in Queens, NY. It will open in the fall of 2020 & bring 17,800 Astoria residents within a #10minwalk of a park. Thanks for your support @QueensBPKatz @CostaCouncil and @NYCWater !
As people flock to the city's parks this spring, WNYC tested the soil in Prospect Park and McCarren Park in Brooklyn, and Astoria Park in Queens for lead — each has its own unique story of potential contamination. @c_werth reports on what we found:
In addition to vehicular lane closures there will be #bikenyc lane closures along the #TDFBBT course. Northbound Queens lanes closed 5/5 from 8am to 1:30pm: Shore Blvd: Ditmars Blvd to Astoria Park South Vernon Blvd: 31st Ave to 44th Dr Pulaski Bridge bike path
