Jackson Heights GREEN Alliance

Jackson Heights Green Alliance is a community group dedicated to increasing and improving open spaces in our neighborhood. JH Green was instrumental in creating the 78th St. Play Street. Along with other community groups, we initiated a project to close down 78th Street alongside Travers Park on Sundays from June through November, in order to increase the space available to the community.

This proved to be a great success that resulted in the street being PERMANENTLY closed - it is now the 78th Street Public Plaza!

In the meantime, JH Green continues to work with elected officials and neighborhood groups to try and find creative ways to improve Jackson Heights.
