In 2008, Willets Point United Inc. vowed to
challenge and defeat the billionaire Mayor's elitist Willets Point
development plan. Now, against all odds, we have done it.
We are thankful to the many people, some known to the public and others unknown, who have tirelessly helped us to defend our property ownership against the City of New York, and to demand that the City begin providing essential municipal services to our area that it has deliberately denied us for decades despite our payment of taxes. We will continue doing so.
What remains, is to bring to justice those who have had the audacity to violate the law and threaten our property ownership.
The flag should never be displayed with the union down, except as a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property.

"Sunlight is the best disinfectant."
Thomas Jefferson, founding father of the United States:
"The same prudence which in private life would forbid our paying our own money for unexplained projects, forbids it in the dispensation of the public moneys."
John Adams (Founding Father & 2nd President of the United States):
"The moment the idea is admitted into society that property is not as sacred as the laws of God, and there is not a force of law and public justice to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence. Property must be sacred or liberty cannot exist."
Under the plan of Mayor Michael Bloomberg, The Bullpen Shop is to be demolished and its property forcibly acquired via eminent domain, to enable the Mayor's controversial $4,000,000,000.00 legacy development project.
