FMCP needs no soccer stadium

Flushing Meadows Corona Park is important to the people of Queens.

With many acres of grass and trees, it is a place where thousands of people come every day to relax and enjoy its beauty. This is what Flushing Meadows is for — not to be torn up and turned into a soccer stadium complex.

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

Keep FMCP a park permanently. It should be granted protective status by the federal government.
