The northern of Queens has plenty of no-longer-used geographic names.
1.Sanford Point became LaGuardia Airport.
2.Lawrence Point became the Astoria power plant.
3.Willet's Point was once at Fort Totten. Today, this name is used for the area next to Citi Field.

A complete failure of the Queens waterfront groups not advocating for a park along Newtown Creek and the East River.

Pulling shopping carts might be neat, but taxes used to get that done a decade ago.

They also give everyone plenty of opportunitiy to seeing developers logos like Plaxel and Goodwill.
