That the proposal, slated to sit atop a useless rail yard, "would..displace communities of color..", really takes the cake for one of the dumbest things to come out of her mouth. And that's not an easy feat.
Not to mention the adjacent communities are pretty white (adjacent areas of Sunnyside are still heavily Irish and LIC is heavily gentrified white/Asian professional).

dumb beyond belief is still not dumber than what comes out of trump though.

i mean at least it didn't advocate murder:

Speaking at a rally in Wilmington, North Carolina, Trump said, "Hillary wants to abolish, essentially abolish, the second amendment [the right to have a gun].” He continued “if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. Although the second amendment people, maybe there is, I don’t know. But I’ll tell you what, that will be a horrible day.”

EDC to Hold ‘Digital Town Hall Meeting’ On Sunnyside Yard Masterplan Wednesday, Plan Faces Heavy Opposition

Officials will be releasing a draft of the Sunnyside Yard master plan Wednesday—although they won’t be unveiling it at a traditional town hall meeting.

The preliminary draft will be showcased online via a digital town hall that will take place on Dec. 4 at 7 p.m. Participants, who are required to register, will learn about the plan via their computer screens and speakers—as opposed to going to a traditional meeting hall.

The Economic Development Corp, which is organizing the online meeting and is quarterbacking the massive development plan, said that the webinar would provide the public with a greater opportunity to learn about the plans and provide feedback.

The overarching plan for the 180-acre site will involve decking over the yards– and potentially constructing tens of thousands of apartments, office space, green space and a transportation network.

The masterplan is expected to be completed before the end of winter and will provide a framework that underpins all aspects of the development for decades to come, including the various phases and timeline.

The webinar will be the fourth public meeting dealing with massive site this year and will be the first to be held online. The last meeting on Sept. 16 at Aviation High School in Long Island City was temporarily disrupted when dozens of protesters turned up to blast the plans.

I am dumbfounded why there are NIMBY's fighting this project. For one it is a rail yard not a park, the other is none of these people fighting the project will be alive to see the fruition of this project (100 year build out).
