The Queenway was originally constructed as a link between Rockaway Beach and central Queeens.  However, a series of track fires in the late 1950's rendered its rails officially abandoned in 1962

The Queensway is currently gaining support for a redevelopment that could ultimately feature into a 3.5 mile linear park -- to be built on a decommissioned section of the LIRR railroad.  The vacant Queensway currently spans from Rego Park to Ozone Park in Queens, New York
