Conduit, Southern Queens, Laurelton and Cross Island Greenways Master Plan, 2000

The ConduitThe Conduit, Southern Queens, Laurelton and Cross Island Greenways will provide a continuous, 32 mile route for cyclists, walkers, in-line skaters and joggers, following portions of the Belt Parkway and connecting some of the most scenic and significant destinations in eastern Brooklyn and southern and eastern Queens.

Recreation and non-motorized transport opportunites will increase substantially with a safe and scenic route, connecting such beautiful parks as Highland, Brookville and Alley Pond Parks, and providing improved access to spectacular waterfront vistas and major employment destinations, such as John F. Kennedy International Airport, Creedmoor Psychiatric Center and Queensboro Community College. The Greenways in this Plan represent a major portion of the city's Greenway system , and connect with some of the city's most popular, existing multi-use paths, including Joe Michael's Mile along Little Neck Bay, the Vanderbilt Motor Parkway in eastern Queens, and the Shore Parkway bicycle path in Queens and Brooklyn. Portions of the original pedestrian paths, built in 1940 in conjunction with the construction of the Belt Parkway, still exist in various states of repair.

Where appropriate, this Plan proposes the revitalization of these paths to reclaim the original vision of the Belt Parkway as a scenic, landscaped corridor to be used and enjoy ed by both motorized and non-motorized transportation.
