A major street in Queens that is known to be one of the most dangerous streets to cross in NYC. Queens Boulevard is a major commercial strip for many of the neighborhoods it cuts through, which includes Briarwood, Forest Hills, Rego Park, Elmhust, Woodside, Sunnyside, and Long Island City. Queens Boulevard is quite possibly the widest non highway in NYC. Through much of its stretch, it's a 12 lane multi-median divided street. Queens Boulevard starts off at Jamaica Avenue in Jamaica, Queens and goes all the way to the Queensboro bridge and to Manhattan.
Emo kid- I'm gonna go kill myself.
Other kid- How?
Emo Kid- 'm gonna cross Queens Boulevard.
commonly referred to as the "Boulevard of Death" or "The Boulevard of Broken Bones"
Old people who can't get across fast enough get run over all the time.
"Be sure to look both ways when crossing Queens Boulevard. It's over 10 lanes wide. It's a human bowling alley."
Queens Boulevard, also known as the "Boulevard of Death" to native Queens residents, is a VERY wide, multi-lane stretch of road that's essentially a super-highway but with street lights and normal intersections. It's split into 4 larger lanes with three lanes each, with island dividers for those bold enough to cross. Unfortunate pedestrians who attempt to cross the entirety of the Boulevard of Death in one fell swoop will most likely be seeing an onslaught of cars and other commercial traffic coming their way by the time they step off the third island divider. The boulevard itself is a main commercial area itself, with many small stores, shopping centers and a mall all within a 5-mile radius.
The Queens Boulevard Line of the MTA New York City Subway also runs under this massive freeway, with four major subway lines running both local and express.
Queens Boulevard. Great shopping locale, but bad for your health if crossing is required!
