City Parkland for a Soccer Stadium?
- New York 08/14/2012 by Jose Santiago (WBAI)
A report in Monday’s New York Post says Major League Soccer is close to finalizing a deal with the city and state to build a professional soccer stadium on 9 acres of parkland in Flushing Meadows Park in Queens. It would require city and state approval since it involves the turning over of public parkland to a private entity, Major League Soccer.
WBAI’s Jose Santiago spoke with Geoffrey Croft, President of New York City Parks Advocates – a group that monitors the use of the city’s parkland.
