The Flushing Bay and Creek must be cleaned as part of the Willets Point redevelopment, urged Congressmember Joseph Crowley, other Queens politicians and the advisory group, Flushing/Willets Point/Corona Local Development Corporation (LDC).
Crowley backs action on Willets Point
On the steps of City Hall, Crowley, Queens Borough President Helen Marshall and Councilmember John Liu - along with the LDC - called for action at the Iron Triangle and the surrounding waterways.
“After a decade of false starts … I believe it’s full steam ahead,” Crowley said in support of the plan to revamp the area bounded by 126th Street, Willets Point Boulevard and Northern Boulevard.
Claire Shulman, President of the LDC, said that she was thrilled by Crowley’s endorsement of the redevelopment plans and desire to clean up the Willets Point waterways.
