A portion of the BQX streetcar line, connecting Queens and Brooklyn, would run through 21st Street from 44th Drive to Astoria Boulevard.

The city will be holding public meetings on the Brooklyn-Queens Connector (BQX) through the first half of this year. The Economic Development Corporation’s new BQX website lists workshops in “February/March 2020” and public hearings in “May/June 2020.” The EDC released a conceptual design report in summer 2018.

A TV crew filmed a pilot today at Sixteen Oaks Grove, the usually desolate tree-lined park on 21st Street and 37th Avenue across from a string of auto-body shops. A crew member on the periphery told me the show was so-far untitled. A man knocking on a film-set trailer door on 36th Avenue told me he was filming two pilots in the area for NBC but not Get Christie Love, an ABC project set for filming on 36th Ave tonight and tomorrow.
