Another Dog-and-Pony hearing on Willets Point
Click photos for larger versions
Ok, so basically the entire Willets Point project has been stripped down to a parking garage/mall on the Citifield parking lot for the Wilpons and a collection of temporary sports facilities, including stickball courts, on condemned land where the convention center and affordable housing was supposed to be built. The whole idea of stickball is that you play it in the street, but in Bloombergland it requires a project that costs billions of dollars...
The City Council didn't vote for this, but they'll look the other way while this gets pushed through.
