Willets Point: A Pig in a Poke

Clearly, the development of Willets Point is not something that will proceed smoothly under the current EDC scenario. As we have been pointing out, the City Council would be crazy to allow the administration to ULURP the area and throw out all of the businesses, without any developer in place.

At last week's council hearings, this skepticism was voiced by anumber of key council members. It will be interesting to see just how strongly the council remains once the mayor's key ally across city hall weighs in on all of this.
