  1. Too much parking.

    • Why? As long as the cars aren’t used to get into midtown/downtown (and they won’t be) what’s the issue?

      • Raises construction costs. Raises housing prices both by limiting how many total units can be built and by constraining developer’s ability to subsidize below-market units.

        And off-street parking encourages people to register a car, driving up traffic in the area. The entire city is saturated with cars and traffic is a problem in most neighborhoods. In this area, Rego Park, it’s really bad including the L.I.E.

    This current shopping center parking lot has about 260 spaces, so increasing that to 686 spaces will just add more traffic congestion and pollution that residents will be forced to breathe.

    • It’s right next to the Long Island Expressway, which carries 200,000 cars past it every day, and a half block downwind of queens boulevard. Additional parking will be used by residents.
      Any changes in congestion and pollution levels will be minimal.

    • Agreed, the city needs to eliminate parking minimums citywide.

  3. I have section 8 voucher I am looking for a one bedroom apartment please send me a text thank you may God bless you 🙏🏽

  4. Definitely too much parking. We don’t need folks driving around in this transit rich area, either.
