Over the weekend NY1 profiled Joby Jacob, the man behind the Motor Parkway East proposal. Recently he launched a petition asking state and local agencies to extend the Motor Parkway Greenway eastward toward Glen Oaks. As Jacob points out in the video, all the Motor Parkway land is already in city hands, it’s just a matter of connecting it into a cohesive greenway. Currently, pedestrian access to the Motor Parkway ends at Winchester Boulevard. The petition now has close to 200 signatures. You can check out the full video right here.
