Willets Point Wages War

We met with 125 of the Willets Point businesses last night along with Council members Monseratte and Avella as well as Richard Cecere, chair of Community Board 3 in Queens. The tenor of the meeting was heated and the common sentiment was that the businesses were ready to stand and fight Bloomberg’s elitist desire to disappear them. We’re ready to help them out and, if the Bronx Terminal Market is a nasty fight, it will look like a kindergarten scuffle when compared to what lies ahead here in Queens.
