A Queens convention center would not have to contend with the congestion and rapid business development that Javits now confronts on the West Side of Manhattan. And unlike the Sunnyside Rail Yards in Queens — another large undeveloped location that could house a convention center — Willets Point would be free of complicated issues surrounding air rights development and platform construction that is required when building over the rail yards.
Javits Expansion May Decamp to Queens
Hey, you don't think we have congestion and rapid business development here? Perhaps you also missed the previous article that says the city has no money for these big projects. I like how eminent domain and extensive environmental remediation are not even considered to be complicated issues anymore, either.
