QUEENS, NYC - 2018

How do you get to Flushing Creek? increases access to Flushing Creek by providing tools to explore the Flushing Waterways on self-guided walks. During summer 2018 four unsanctioned aluminum road signs were installed on existing street sign posts along the Flushing Bay Promenade, nearby the SkyView Mall Waterfront Access Plan, and at the bottom of the Northern Boulevard Bridge. These signs directed people towards then informal access points along Flushing Creek. A short publication including photos of the Creek, and various walking routes to the waterfront was temporarily distributed via sign posts. With increased access and visibility conversations about the Creek’s future will start to become more common.

This project was made possible through the support of the New York-New Jersey Harbor & Estuary Program (HEP), Waterfront Alliance, and Guardians of Flushing Bay as part of Waterfront Alliance's 2018 City of Water Day and the #InYourNeighborhood program.
