The Rockaway Waterfront Alliance has released a proposal for a pedestrian greenway underneath the elevated A train tracks that would span the five-mile length of the Rockaway Peninsula. The project, called "Project Underway," would take the mostly neglected space and transform it into a mix or bike paths, footpaths, and green space. According to the proposal (pdf) the first phase of the three-phase plan is already underway, and the Alliance is working to the owners of the Averne By the Sea development to develop a stretch from Beach 62nd Street to Beach 67th Street into a temporary pilot project. The pilot will include green insfrastructure landscaping to reduce stormwater runoff, among other features.
