Whitestone brownfield won't get cleaned up

From the Times Ledger:

The Great Atlantic Pacific & Tea Company currently has no definite plans to clean up a brownfield at the former Johnny on the Spot Dry Cleaners site in Whitestone after the company filed for bankruptcy in July, according to the state Department of Environmental Conservation.

At the end of July, A&P, which also owns Pathmark and Waldbaum’s, announced it had agreed to sell 120 stores for about $600 million. The company said it secured financing of $100 million and voluntarily filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

In July 2014, A&P submitted an application on behalf of the former Johnny on the Spot Dry Cleaners at 152-45 10th Ave. to the DEC’s Brownfield Cleanup Program, a voluntary program that helps repair and redevelop brownfields, or contaminated properties.

I just love the concept of a "brown field".
It bespeaks of having been shit on for years.
Let's declare Queens borough hall a "brown field".
It certainly has a history that is full of shit!
