This event will feature transportation experts and advocates to discuss how Sunnyside Yard could serve as a regional connector—across NYC and the northeast—via Sunnyside Station. As we look to a future of diverse transportation options, how could Sunnyside Yard establish a street network that prioritizes safety, walking and biking, and quality public space? How might Sunnyside Yard catalyze new transportation infrastructure, such as a Bus Rapid Transit Line and an eventual new subway line? And how can we incorporate new ways for Queens residents to get to, through and from Sunnyside Yard?

Speakers:

Ruben Diaz, Jr., Bronx Borough President

Denise Keehan-Smith, Chair, Queens Community Board 2

Nick Sifuentes, Executive Director, Tri-State Transportation Campaign
