Statement on the 44th Drive Development

September 26, 2017

The proposed buildings are too massive for this area and fail to take advantage of the waterfront city-owned property on a variety of uses that are needed in the Long Island City neighborhood. I have heard from several civic groups and community leaders in the area that additional green space and parkland is needed for the Hunters Point and Long Island City community. This parcel of land would be a perfect opportunity for the city to make good on this request.
