City Council’s approval of our plan to redevelop Willets Point in Queens means that the “valley of ashes” will be cleaned up and transformed. Get more details at newwilletspointqueens.com (via nycgov)
Willet’s Point is the area immediately surrounding Citi Field. Essentially it’s what sits between Flushing Meadow Park and Flushing Bay. It’s long been an industrial area. It’s not pretty to look at, however it’s a piece of NYC’s industrial complex. The city sees this as a win to create a new development plan there, but many residents and businesses see it as an overreach of eminent domain.
