I would like to congratulate Mayor Mike Bloomberg's ambitious plans for the redevelopment of Willets Point.
I was at Citi Field on Wednesday for a game, and I saw firsthand the condition of the area, including the need for better paved streets. I have also read there is a basic need for an improved sewer and drainage system for the area.
I hope this project goes through, for the residents of Queens really need this. Kudos to the mayor for his plans and support of this badly needed redevelopment of Willets Point.
