How will the Queensway impact the lives of working and middle class people? Recently on WNYC the Brian Leher show the discussion of a map of median income in NYC. Along the Queensway you can see the neighborhoods the income changes from 2007-2011. Ozone Park went down by -9.03%, Woodhaven up +1.83% and -12.84% for Rego Park & Forest Hills. In the link below you can see the details from the map. Recent report from Queens College Professor Larson on analysis of census tracts alongside the proposed project.These studies provide insight of the populations living in the area and how they can be impacted from a massive development project in their neighborhood. We have all witnessed in SE Queens more people moving into our communities due to gentrification in Brooklyn.
