​Yesterday her family, friends, community and fellow volunteers gathered to pay tribute to Elizabeth McQueen, founder of the Friends of Queensbridge Park and Park Steward.

Mrs. McQueen's dedication to the community and especially its children, her spirit of service, and her role as a mentor for many of us were frequently referenced by those who spoke at the service, including Pastor Hassan Clark, Bishop Mitchell Taylor, Assemblywoman Cathy Nolan, City Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer, Katie Elllman of Green Shores NYC, and Marion Jeffries, President of the Astoria/Long Island City branch of the NAACP. 

Mrs. McQueen will be greatly missed, but her legacy will live on in Queensbridge Park, a place that her hard work and advocacy did so much to transform.
