"Somebody tell me why this huge traffic median hasn't yet been transformed into a Greenstreet? This piece of land is located on Hillside Avenue in Queens Village, near the Martin Van Buren High School. I'm sure it can be renamed after a prominent alumnus. The traffic island is so huge, it can qualify as a park. It is located in the district of David Weprin."
Another Queens councilman is calling for more Greenstreets in Whitestone:
