Nearly two years ago, Mayor Bill de Blasio unveiled a grand vision for an affordable housing development.
"It's an opportunity to keep our city affordable for thousands of New Yorkers, particularly in the borough of Queens. I am referring to Sunnyside Yards," de Blasio said in February 2015.
Planners wanted New Yorkers to picture thousands of units of affordable housing above a 200-acre railyard in Sunnyside, Queens.
But since the proposal was first unveiled, we've haven't heard much. So has it gone off track?
"There is a lot of back and forth happening right now, both within the administration and with some of the engineers we are consulting with about different development scenarios, exactly what is feasible," said Wiley Norvell, communications adviser to de Blasio.
According to the project's timeline, the city was supposed to unveil a feasibility study in the summer of 2016. The administration says that study, which cost about $2.5 million, is not complete. It's coming, they promise, within a few months.
The local councilman, Jimmy Van Bramer, questions whether the whole project has just derailed.
"When you make a big important speech and you are the mayor, people listen and they hear it," Van Bramer said. "We've gone through this study phase, and now, I think people are getting a little agitated about where is it, what's happening here, why aren't we hearing back."
