Let's just agree that this awful chain link enclosure is an abomination that turns citizens into litterers, if not criminals...maybe some flowering vines to cover up this eyesore?

I'd argue that the width of the sidewalks along Horace Harding in this neighborhood is disproportionately narrow and utterly inadequate in relation to the size of the adjacent residential buildings and the number of occupants served. Walking along these sidewalks is an adrenaline-inducing experience. If by chance, you should have to step off the sidewalk to avoid colliding into other pedestrians, you are immediately in danger of being hit by an incoming vehicle traveling at 40mph+. There is no buffer whatsoever between pedestrian traffic and expressway traffic. A protected bike lane might provide such a buffer, while also providing an alternative means of travel for local residents.

Either Astoria Blvd, or Ditmars/82nd St - please help!!! There are countless pedestrian and cyclists issues here and this is not safe for anyone; cars are out of control and there are never ending tragedies occurring here on a daily basis.

Hi. This area is extremely dangerous, not just for cyclists, but for pedestrians. It is not even safe to walk across the street! Drivers are extremely aggressive and this area seems to bring out the worst in drivers. This may just be the worst intersection in the five boroughs. If not a bike lane here, how about dedicated green pedestrian crossings, while the traffic lights remain red in all directions? People cannot even cross on the eastbound side of Astoria Blvd. and 82nd St., with the cars making a left on Astoria Blvd. from 82nd St./Ditmars. Please please for the love of humanity, help this intersection!!!

There needs to be pedestrian and biking protection at this intersection - at a minimum, dedicated crossing for pedestrians, which cyclists could use. People can't even walk across Astoria Boulevard and 82nd St without risking their lives. Cars have taken over this area, and there at a minimum, needs to be pedestrian only green crossing lights, with all traffic lights red. Then bike lanes up through 82nd St and into Ditmars Boulevard, from East Elmhurst, into Upper Ditmars.

Thanks.

Northern Boulevard should be given a complete "Great Streets" style redesign, providing paved and curbed protected bike lanes stretching all the way from Flushing via the Roosevelt Ave bridge through Citi Field, down Northern Blvd to the Queensboro Bridge entrance. Along Northern Blvd, bike lanes should deflect inward around bus stops creating bus stop islands for passengers while keeping bike lanes clear (refer to Mile End Rd in London, UK as a prime example). This would create another major bike route through Queens (in addition to Queens Blvd) connecting major centers of Flushing, Jackson Heights, Astoria, and LIC, and showcase everyday bike commuting as an attractive and safe alternative to car transport.

This crossing is a dangerous bike trail crossing a high-speed highway onramp. This route MUST be grade separated to eliminate the high likelihood of severe accidents in this portion of the route. Please implement a bike/pedestrian bridge!

37th Ave is a busy commercial strip. There are many pedestrians and people riding bikes. Double parking often makes this street incredibly dangerous for people on bikes. A protected bike lane could mitigate unsafe driver behavior and provide a means for local residents to better access shops on this street.

Shea Road in Flushing Meadows Park should have a physically protected bike path. I often bike into the park at UN Ave N, then onto Meridian Road, north to Shea Road to access Citi Field for Mets games. There are places where cars have access and people drive fast and recklessly during Mets games and other events. All of these routes should have physical protected for those biking and walking here.

When I first moved to Queens and was trying to figure out how to get into the park this is one of the first access points I attempted. What a nightmare. Somewhat better in recent years, but the city needs to come up with a uniform way of dealing with bike/ped crossings at these highway spaces that doesn't actively discourage usage. Love that you have to basically run down a dirt patch across the highway onramp to get into the park, and that, once in, it's all parking lot and no park.

A bike lane on Broadway would be especially beneficial here. A major crossing point between neighborhoods and extremely difficult to navigate through on a bike. There's bit of a hump here, so one is going uphill in both directions, pavement is atrocious and drivers are coming and going in a million different directions.

The pavement under the LIE here is a nightmare, specifically in the bike lane, and exactly where it gets dark and difficult to see. Especially considering the west/north bound drivers often make a right turn here and a cyclist needs to be paying attention to the drivers coming behind them on their left. The pavement is routinely patched, but the right turning drivers continuously erode those patches leaving worse holes than before.

Both bridges connecting the Flushing Bay Promenade to the city streets are badly designed and in poor condition. The inclines on the street side of these need to be normalized with the street, because as they are they make if very difficult for cyclists to get themselves safely to the curb so they can see when it's safe to cross. But also, could we get on demand stop lights here or something? It's like playing frogger from a dead stop on the side of a highway. It's diffcult to access the promenade all around, and very little indication to the public that there is public green space there.

There needs to be a curb cut for cyclists to get into the park. I either use the pedestrian curb cut to the south, or the Hall of Science curb cut to the north, but creates confusion and conflict. For new cyclists there's no way to know this is their best route into the park. Signage would be helpful as well. ALSO: it's off the map, but extremely important. The redesign of the bridge between the Hall of Science and the Tennis complex is a nightmare for pedestrians and cyclists. Having highway access at one of the few and most important ped/bike access points to the park (over the said highway no less) is insulting, confusing, dangerous, and offputting. This should be redesigned to prioritze non-vehicular usage.

The signage for Westbound cyclists does a poor job of indicating the 1 block camel hump. It's also an extremely unusual design, so not something anyone would look for. Also, the shared ped/bike space under the LIE is dark, dirty and depressing. There's also nothing to indicate to pedestrians that they are sharing that space with cyclists.

MASSIVE veto on the idea of making 99th the official bike crossing location, especially to cross the LIE. As a woman who typicaly walks and bikes alone I avoid what I call "rape cages" at all costs. But setting aside the safety issue, the second you ask a cyclist to climb a steep incline or dismount and walk their bike your bike route has a 100% failure. Road engineers design our streets to enable drivers to making sweeping unemcumbered movements with their car at speed, why should we expect someone who is powering their transportation with their body to expend that much additional energy and time just so we can enable those drivers to blast along with their foot on the gas pedal. My routes under the LIE are Queens Blvd, Junction and 108th. The Junction and 108th underpasses need to be redesigned to accomodate cyclists if you want any hope of new riders moving between Rego Park and Corona.

The insanse private passenger commuter vehicle parking near this policy precint, and gorilla parking spaces they have painted for themselves are an obstacle to walking, let alone cycling. Officers looking to commute by car need to find legal parking spaces for their commute, no different than any other commuter. Working for the policy should not put them above the law. This is not unique to this precinct, but the level of audacity is particularly astonishing.

Junction Boulevard is the main through route in this entire district and in my mind is absolutely essential as a bike route. I use it more than any other road in this section of map other than Broadway. I started using it when I discovered just how terrible the Q72 is. Huge headways followed by a creeping trip to get by the massive traffic at the LIRR and double parking near the 7 train. Massive rearrangements required between Queens Blvd and Norhern Blvd on Junction.
