Grand Central Parkway Walk
In the fall of 2021, myself and a collaborator, Eric Ervin, walked along the length of the Grand Central Parkway in Queens, NY, over a series of weekends. What does it mean to move at the pace of a human sized body alongside a road meant to carry cars? The first parkways were designed to include pedestrians, but the Grand Central prevents people from accessing it, as do most modern highways. I wanted to know what we would learn about how we move through this city, and the neighborhoods that the road travels through.
