Since the High Line's first section opened a few years ago, it's become one of the most popular (and swankiest) spots in the city—and now Queens is one step closer to getting its own elevated train track park, the QueensWay. On Wednesday, Governor Cuomo voted to give the group behind the project, the Trust for Public Land, a $467,000 grant to scope out the site.

The park would run along the tracks of the now-defunct Rockaway Line of the Long Island Railroad, a straight 3.5 mile shot from Rego Park to Ozone Park. When the project was first proposed last year, it was met with a lot of support from Queens residents and community activists who looked forward to getting accessible, added parkland in the borough. But since all green spaces come with grey linings, the QueensWay still has a long way to go until it becomes a reality.

The tracks as they are now are "a great representation of cultural diversity from the beer cans that you find," as Trust official Marc Matsil told the WSJ, and the whole area has to be evaluated for safety. Plus, while the High Line managed to be a major moneymaker, not every elevated park has its same assets, and it's not clear how much cash a Queens park will bring in. The Trust is looking for private funding, and are also in talks with Major League Soccer about striking up a partnership, but for now we'll all just have to stick with waiting for the final section of the High Line to open up sometime in 2014.
