With DOT crews wrapping up work on the 111th Street project, local residents went for a celebratory ride last week. Streetfilms' Clarence Eckerson was there and put together this video tour of the redesigned street and retrospective of the three-year advocacy campaign to make this project happen.
This just in: DOT crews are laying down green paint on the new 111th Street bike lane next to Flushing Meadows Corona Park. Work on the project started back in April, and new stripes have been in place for weeks, but until now people were still parking in the bike lane. With this green coat, the whole project is snapping into place.
