Flushing New York, you either love it or hate it and that is just the thing if people hate Flushing NY - they REALLY hate Flushing NY but there are a few sections of Flushing NY. There is what I call Flushing "Flushing" (which would be from 35th ave and 154th all the way up to Main Street) another section is Flushing North which runs from 154th and 32nd ave up to Whitestone and then there is College Point Flushing, which is very industrial and the home of Willets Point.
Lately, there has been alot of talk about Flushing such as redeveloping and it really depends on who you talk to because you can get the pros and cons of both sides. Flushing/College Point is probably the one subject that has been in the spotlight most with subjects ranging from the new Mets Field, eminent domain and condos being built.
Yesterday, there was an article written by Lion Calandra in the Daily News, "Give us a sign that all are welcome" and I can't help but stand up to applaud the author. Lion is 100% right, there is not a welcoming mat and I don't know any person who feels comfortable shopping in an establishment if you can't read what store you are entering.
Flushing is a great place to be but there are alot of things that need to be taken care of - like the rezoning for starters.
Is there hope for ALL of Flushing?
