Dear Editor,

The Queens Chamber of Commerce firmly believes and supports the effort for a true hat-trick: bring the Islanders to Queens, move quickly on the LaGuardia Airport to Willets Point AirTrain, and build a multi-purpose sports facility to house both the Islanders and a major league soccer team.

Within a small radius, Queens will become a mecca for a number of sports: Mets baseball, USTA tennis, Islanders hockey, MLS soccer, and potentially cricket, among other leisure activities.

We have all the right pieces in place: a committed borough president in Melinda Katz, a truly supportive governor in Andrew Cuomo, and a groundswell of support from the business community.

For the first time, the solutions to issues that have plagued Queens in the past - transportation, focus and excitement - are in place.

We are past the notion that everyone travels to New York to head to Manhattan. The billions being invested in LaGuardia and JFK are a testament to this.


Thomas J. Grech

Executive Director
