I was so very pleased with your editorial on the West Side Tennis Club and the comprehensive excellent proposals made for its use. This club is such a beautiful venue and perfect for concerts under the stars.
The editorial proposal for six concerts limited to four hours with desirable musical artists, as well as limiting the available seats to 10,000 with parking restrictions, would contribute to acceptable events of this location with minimal effect on the surrounding community. Also, the fact that it would cost less than $1.5 million for the necessary improvements is a welcome and attainable revelation.
Thank you for this proposal that would preserve this beautiful Forest Hills Tennis Stadium, and would allow Queens another location for entertainment while creating a source of income for its perpetuity.
