Smile NEW YORK | Sunnyside Yards

Creating this separate thread for a development that could overtake the Hudson Yards thread.

Sunnyside Yards in Queens has always been talked about as a potential site for everything from housing to stadiums, and convention centers.

But now with both the mayor of New York - Bill de Blasio, and the governor of New York - Andrew Cuomo, both homing in on Sunnyside Yards as the next mega-development in the city,
the discussion has begun. What should be built over the yards? One obvious answer would be housing, but the question is how should it be built, and what along with it?

As the mayor and governor play a little tug of war over the site, the formation of a plan begins.

But first, an overview of the site, courtesy of GoogleEarth...
