Yet nothing changed. This project is by no means perfect... I am worried about its impact on Flushing. Yet I think we can withstand it. We need the jobs, we need to put people to work. We need to build Flushing in a way that paves the way to the future without destroying us today.
I for one will speak out in favor of this project not as vociferously as others but nevertheless in support, because the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few. This project will improve downtown Flushing. Please God Build it but Help the Community. Maybe the Mayor will hear our call and do more to promote amenities for our community.
