Willets Point

        Willets Point  The City's proposal threatens thousands of jobs  The purpose of the 2006 Willets Point Study was to survey and map land use patterns and businesses in the Willets Point area of Queens, New York. The information and maps have served as background for discussions and debates about the area. Since the study, Willets Point was the subject of a major redevelopment proposal by New York City’s Economic Development Corporation, and the city has already moved to acquire the land and relocate businesses. However, the 2006 study outlined the large number of jobs and businesses that could be lost and suggested some alternative strategies that would retain and build on existing jobs.
