Thank you again for your candid, open participation and investment in the future of the Queens community. Your voice is being heard.
Above was in an email i received last night from Queens Future.
I have a realistic question. When it is time to knockdown Citi Field and rebuild it, where does that construction happen? If anything gets built on the parking lots other than a park and a new stadium needs to be built, where does it go and what happens to the buildings that were built on parkland? Should the Mets have to pay for the parkland at market value if any of this happens?
Anyone ask these questions yet?
