You are cordially invited to the design unveiling for the new Travers Park on July 18th at 11:30AM!
We are absolutely delighted to finally be able to show you the new design for Travers Park, the 78th Street Plaza, and the Rory Staunton Field!
After years of hard work and with vast amounts of help from the Jackson Heights community our neighborhood will finally be getting the park that it deserves. The Jackson Heights Green Alliance is proud to have played a part in this, but we could not have done it without you!
See below for information on when you’ll be able to see the design. We won’t spoil it for you, but we’re sure you’ll share our excitement once you see it!
Build Bike Lanes!
qns.bike is organizing a petition to support and build a network of bicycle lanes in our area. We are very big fans of this, and fully support their efforts, so please sign their petition, and join them on facebook! They will be collecting signatures during tomorrow’s design unveiling, so stop by and say hi to them!

Hibridos Collective is thrilled to release the printed and interactive map of the Jackson Heights DiverCity Mapping Project, a 2-year community mapping experience with local residents! Come pick up a free copy of the printed map designed as a map zine (a self-published fold-out magazine) capturing neighborhood resources and assets as well as challenges.
This map zine documents the mapping process of Jackson Heights residents who participated in the DiverCity Mapping Project through community workshops and a mapmaking toolkit for a self-guided neighborhood exploration. Each mapmaker created a journal that includes more detailed notes, photographs, collages and drawings on their neighborhood findings and reflections on the meaning of living in a diverse community. Read more about our mapping experiences, flip through these digital journals and check out photos from our community engagement workshops at www.hibridos.co/divercitymap
