Watch: The Transformation of Queens Boulevard, Block By Block

Queens Boulevard has been massively transformed over the past year thanks to $100 million dollars put forth by Mayor Bill de Blasio and the Vision Zero project.

In this video from Streetfilms, take a tour of some of the improvements and resulting safety benefits, block by block.

For many years, New York City's Queens Boulevard was known as the "Boulevard of Death." The street cuts through the heart of the Queens, expanding at some points to a chaotic 12 to 16 lanes of traffic -- which makes it extremely dangerous for human beings. From 2003 to 2013, 38 pedestrians and cyclists were killed and 450 suffered severe injuries.
