    I am not in favor or either of the proposals mentioned. With regard to the soccer stadium, public parkland would be usurped for the primary purpose of a commercial entity and prevent the space from being used by the public. We have seen too much of Flushing Meadows Corona Park land lost to the US Tennis Assoc. (and they are looking for further expansion), the community needs to say NO, not anymore .

    As to the casino, we already have a gambling venue at Aquaduct with room to expand and ample parking, so why are we looking at Willets Point? Haven't we caused enough grief to that community already?
