A major boulevard in Queens NY that Bayside residents often refer to as "Franny Lew". Francis Lewis Boulevard was previously called Cross Island Boulevard, then later named after a Whitestone resident who signed the Declaration of Independence to avoid confusion with the Cross Island Parkway. Easily one of the longest boulevards in Queens, probably the second longest behing Northern Boulevard, F. Lewis Boulevard starts off at Hook Creek Boulevard in Rosedale Queens right by the border to Nassau and goes all the way to Whitestone. The Q76 and Q77 buses serve Francis Lewis Boulevard.
Francis Lewis Boulevard cuts through Cunningham park.
