Yes, we in Woodhaven have “walkability.” This being especially good for our older shoppers for it keeps them independent and for our families for they can always “run down to the avenue” to pick up something.

Our GWDC is “Small Town” Annual Memorial Day Observance, is Thursday, May 22, at 7:30 p.m. at Forest Parkway Plaza at Forest Parkway and Jamaica Avenue. At this observance we will place our new wreath at the World War II Memorial and hold a remembrance to those lost in defense of our country from our Woodhaven community.

Queensway or reactivation? It has been 20 years or more since the discussion on the use of this Rockaway Beach Rail Line, and since then a new proposed use has been presented. The conversion of this property, especially the portion in Woodhaven on 98th Street, should be made parkland and the rails removed.

In this way Woodhaven would be out of the equation and the two remaining parts of this railway can be used in the way that is determined by their abutting communities. Think about it, it can be done
