The Queensway is a proposed 3.5-mile (5.6 km) New York City linear park which could be built on a section of the elevated former LIRR Rockaway Beach Branch, which runs from Rego Park to Ozone Park in the New York City borough of Queens. The park is an example of the re-use of abandoned railway land in an urban setting. It is to be redesigned as an aerial greenway like the High Line Park in Manhattan.
The recycling of the railway into a trail is supported by some people who live in the neighborhoods which lie along the line's right-of-way (ROW). However, other people who live along the line, are opposed to the ROW's redevelopment into a trail.
