If you want a comprehensive summary of the tweeding that took place at Willets Point and/or would like to read about the future problems the plan faces, visit Noticing New York's 4 part series on the issue. You will learn a lot about this plan that you may not have realized and wonder about all the questions that the City won't and can't answer.

No one in this forum will read that.

Their attention spans dont allow reading more than 100 words at a time.

Regardless, the piece is written by an avowed opponent to the development and does not represent a fair and balanced "comprehensive summary"

I'm sorry, I guess we should stick to reading Queens weeklies and EDC press releases for fair and balanced coverage.

The author of this piece has written a scholarly analysis and is not being paid by either side, so it's as fair as it can be.

"Noticing New York is an independent entity dedicated to the proposition that developing New York and appreciating New York go hand in hand."

How dare he write about this!

Tell us the precise nature of information that you believe is missing from the analysis, which you claim results in the analysis being something other than fair and balanced.

I never said anything was "missing" persay.
The author at the beginning says clearly that they are against the development and then goes on to make assumptions that have no basis in fact other than their own spin.

I could go into them but what use since - as I said - no one in this forum will bother to read the Noticing New York piece.

the author relies on many of those same sources as you scorn.

Just because it is done without fee does not mean it is fair and balanced. As YOU can attest.

"the author relies on many of those same sources as you scorn."

Exactly my point.

"Just because it is done without fee does not mean it is fair and balanced."

I merely mentioned that it was a comprehensive summary of the tweeding. I'd rather trust a non-EDC urban planner to give me the real deal than Biggie Smalls or Robert Lieber.

I read all of it. It confirms my belief that prospective WP development is one of the worst, most politically tainted land grabs in recent memory. Wilpons comments about a soccer stadium reinforces that fact. I dont know how a person could believe in the notion of private property and still think its ok to hear statements from the Mayor and private developers about what is going to happen to property they dont own.

Mayor Hugo Bloomberg can kiss my ass.
