    Marpillero Pollak Architects, Architect and Urban Designer for Queens Plaza Bicycle and Pedestrian Improvements project, collaborated with WRT/Margie Ruddick Landscape on all aspects of design shown in this article (with exception of salvaged concrete areas beneath elevated), and created and/or co-created the images posted here. We are excited about the project, phase 1 of which opened to public on April 5th of this year.
