Benched In Jackson Heights



Councilmember Daniel Dromm (l.) and Jackson Heights Beautification Group President Edwin Westley (r.) read the Western Queens Gazette while sitting on the recently reinstalled benches in front of the Jackson Heights Post Office on 37th Avenue. The two men worked together with Congressmember Joseph Crowley and Postmaster Bill Rogers to bring the benches back in an effort to improve the quality of life and overall well-being of their community. The benches provide an opportunity for residents and visitors alike to sit and relax and for seniors to rest while on their walks. The sidewalk furniture also encourages everyone to spend more time in public spaces and to take pleasure in the street life which makes Jackson Heights such a vibrant neighborhood.
