Once it was a commuter parking lot, now it's a park. With a new name: Dutch Kills Green. The Long Island City (Queens) park replaces the old JFK commuter parking lot. A city press release describes the park as having "new crosswalks, sidewalks, countdown pedestrian signals, improved lighting, 489 new trees, an off-street bikeway, and a separate pedestrian walkway.

We are happy to hear that a Long Island City parking lot has been turned into a park. Dutch Kills Green sounds like a great addition.
