2008_09_willets2.jpgThe Bloomberg administration's plan to transform the industrial Willets Point section of Queens was approved by the City Council's planning committee. But, the Sun points out, "the council vote will be its biggest hurdle." The $3 billion to make way for a hotel, convention center, offices, and stores, is supposed to generate 5,300 jobs and billions in economic activity, but about 200 small business owners, who would be forced out, have been bitterly opposing the project, unhappy the city calls the area "neglected," when it's the city that neglected Willets Point. Those critics believe the plan will be quashed by the Council.
