City Councilman Hiram Monserrate (D-East Elmhurst) said last week he is pulling his support of the redevelopment of Willets Point unless the city comes forward with a concrete plan.
Monserrate losing gusto for Willets Pt.
Monserrate, speaking at a rally alongside dozens of Willets Point workers outside the New York City Economic Development Corporation offices in Manhattan last Thursday, said his patience has worn thin for "the dog and pony shows" the city has put on regarding their planned redevelopment of Willets Point.
"They have to come to the table with something that's real," Monserrate said. "They should not expect the City Council to approve a plan that has no real plan in it."
