QROW (Queensway Right-of-Way) is a policy initiative to insure safe passage for citizens on and around the proposed Queensway elevated park. Developed as a counter response to an AIA ENYA competition (2013), we chose to highlight the issue of NYPD’s stop-and-frisk activity around the neighborhood and proposed the construction of temporary accessory structures on and alongside the Queensway. These proposed structures serve as observation towers to facilitate the monitoring and documentation of all stop-and-frisk activity by the NYPD. The initiative creates a framework for citizen oversight of the police force.
