It just ain't gonna happen. Willets Point will be added to the graveyard eventually. Click photo for website.
And these folks make a good point:
Perhaps the MTA wouldn't be in such dire straits and sticking it to New Yorkers had they not done dumb real estate deals. For example, the MTA has an agreement to sell the 8-acre Vanderbilt Rail Yards to Bruce Ratner for $100 million (no money collected yet) leaving $150 million on the table from Extell Development Company and, moreover, the $214.5 million the yards had been appraised at.
That's a minimum of $50 million the MTA turned down on just one deal. No wonder New Yorkers now have to pay.
