From Forest Hills Patch:
Between seven and 10 potential suitors have lined up to take a crack at the Forest Hills stadium, either to save and restore it or turn it into something new, the West Side Tennis Club president said in an interview. Just what is most likely to happen at the site, however, is still anyone's guess.
Ken Parker, president of the West Side Tennis Club, said that while the process is still in its somewhat early stages, there is definitely continued interest from buyers in the club's tennis stadium.
"We're going to see who's really qualified to make a proposal and then we'll go over and see what those proposals are once we get them," Parker said.
Parker made it clear that the club's board didn't have any plans on turning the stadium into a charity case, saying that they wouldn't spend any time discussing fundraising efforts to restore the aging structure.
"We're not interested in getting involved in a fundraiser for them to raise capital," Parker said. "They have to be in a position to come across with some viable ideas and the financing behind it."
