A former parking lot at the eastern end of Queens Plaza in Long Island City is being repurposed and transformed into a sustainable “1.5-acre oasis with wetlands, plantings, millstones and artist-designed benches,” the Times reports.

Last Thursday, Mayor Bloomberg charged the people of New York City to come up with a name for this new chunk of urban wilderness.

“Everyone knows that New Yorkers are full of opinions, so who better to ask,” Mayor Bloomberg told reporters.

Submissions will be accepted online at www.nyc.gov until Oct. 26 at 5 p.m. The winning name will be selected by a committee of City representatives and members of the local community.

  1. We can’t wait to see the finished product of this Long Island City park. We’re out of ideas for names, but we’re curious to see the submissions!
