Dear Editor (Times Newsweekly):
It is obvious that this heavily populated area needs a hospital, certainly not a restaurant or a bakery. Area hospitals are overcrowded as a result of the closure of three facilities since November 2008. What should be discussed is the impact that this has had on the surrounding communities and remaining hospitals in the area.
I particularly enjoyed the proposal from the venture capitalist who wants to bring a "high-level medical facility" and attach a supermarket to the property. It can be called "Shop and Drop."
The people of Queens deserve quality healthcare. This site should be used for that purpose solely.
