The JHBG strongly opposes the alienation of parkland, particularly in Flushing Meadows Corona Park, which for too long has been the destination for the endless series of sports and business proposals that have no place in a public park.
These developments would never be acceptable in Central Park, Prospect Park, or Van Cortlandt Park, but are deemed acceptable for Queens’ premier park.
It is time to say no to this loss of our public park space. We agree with the Queens Civic Congress, the Flushing Bay Guardians and other organizations and stand opposed to the bill introduced in the New York State Assembly as A5688.
It is imperative that you share your opinion on the alienation of Queens parkland with our elected officials:
