Despite these reservations, we look forward to the day when Mets fans can walk through a beautiful plaza before and after a game. But let’s make sure the city gets a fair deal from the Wilpons and Sterling."
The Ledger almost had us-that is until this last thought. What the paper leaves out is that this was a scheme that was concocted by the Wilpons over 20 years ago-and they employed a number of dubious methods in its pursuit-not the least of which was getting the city to use the threat of condemnation to take away property that has now been given over to Sterling Equities.
They don't deserve a nickle of the tax payers' money-having already taken $500,000 for their truly inspired lobbying effort fronted by Claire Shulman. What they deserve is a swift retribution for their fraud and deception-and we also look forward to a plaza for Mets fans, on the west side of CitiField-bought and paid for by the new owners not by these scoundrels.
