For more than a decade, there was an ambitious plan being formulated to revitalize the rotting '64 World's Fair structures in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park.
Unfortunately, as it wasn't something that would benefit Manhattanites, no one in the NYC Parks Department gave a damn about it. Why should they put money into a park that only immigrants and white trash use? It's much more important to make sure yuppies in Tribeca and the Upper West Side have nice places to unwind.
However, there is a call to revisit the plan, and the people of Queens must not rest until this blight on our borough is corrected. This is supposed to be our flagship park. It has acres upon acres of wide open space, and historic structures with lots of potential. There is no excuse for it to look like a dump.
