Dear Editor:

Flushing Meadows Park is very important to the people of Queens. With many acres of grass and trees, it is a place where thousands of people come everydayto relax and enjoy the beauty of the park. This is what Flushing Meadows Park is for — not to be torn up and turned into a soccer stadium complex.

Why don’t the developers build one in Central Park? If they attempted to do that, they would be met with major opposition from Manhattanites and politicians alike. Our politicians here in Queens better open their mouths and steadfastly stand against this absurd proposal.

Keep Flushing Meadow Parka park — permanently. It should be granted protective status by the National Park Service.
