The city's redevelopment of chop shop central, aka Willets Point, has seen some tough moments, but now deals between the city and Iron Triangle businesses to clear land for the megaproject are starting to close. The city has about 80 percent of the 62-acre development area in contract. Thirty of those properties have closed so far?the latest deed, for two more parcels of land, was recorded this week for $12 million?and the folks at PropertyShark have handily mapped them (the city-owned land's in blue above). With that taken care of, there's now even less reason to visit Citi Field any time soon!
