Second Sunnyside Yard master plan public meeting will take place this month

Just as thoughts of Amazon’s HQ2 campus in Long Island City are beginning to recede, the specter of the massive Sunnyside Yard development project comes drifting back to western Queens.

The city and Amtrak will host the second of four public meetings later this month, marking the halfway point of the 18-month master planning process and it will allow the brain trust behind the project to clear up some misconceptions that are shared by many residents living in neighborhoods surrounding the 180-acre train yard.
