Today’s news:

Nix plan for FMCP soccer stadium

TimesLedger Newspapers

In terms of taking parkland for private interests, I remember helping to get citizens to sign petitions against Donald Mannes’ project for putting a racetrack in Flushing Meadow Corona Park.

Fortunately, it did not happen. Now the fight has centered around the building of a soccer stadium. Same encroachment, new commodity.

Ideally, I would like to see a bakery put in that space. I would rather have a sacher torte than a soccer court.
