They are cutting a ribbon on a city-owned asphalt plant in Willets Point.
That's right - as long as it's city-owned, industrial uses are okay.
I hope to own a condo there some day so I can blog about black lung.
Prediction: Not one reporter asks why they think it will be a good idea to have 5500 housing units, schools and retail shops near an asphalt plant and not one asks why this site wasn't included in the rezoning of Willets Point.
