Now, you can name a piece of Queens.

The New York City Economic Development Corp. is asking residents to dub the 1.5 acre open space at the eastern end of Queens Plaza in Long Island City.

The contest is open to New York City residents. The winning name will be selected by city representatives and the local community.

Click here to submit your entry. The contest will be open until 5 p.m. on October 26.

The name will be unveiled at the park’s official ribbon-cutting event and the winner will have the opportunity to meet Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

The former John F. Kennedy parking lot has recently been transformed with over $45 million in roadway, sidewalk, and bikeway improvements. The L.I.C. park features wetlands, native plantings, artist-designed benches and paving.
