In the Daily News

Queens Borough President Helen Marshall ripped the idea of splitting the Willets Point development plan into two segments. This alternative plan was viewed by some as a possible compromise for the plan to gain support in the City Council. The western portion of Willets Point would be completely developed before the eastern portion began its development.

Marshall points out that developing half of the area at a time would leave brand new residential and commercial property right next to the contaminated wasteland that would be the other half of Willets Point.

Marshall makes a lot of sense here, and I think the city has to go full speed ahead with the entire development plan.

Also in the Daily News, a story about the fictional film Save Iron Triangle which was made as a feel good story that's supposed to make us feel like developing Willets Point would be a horrible thing. Obviously, I completely disagree.
