Iron Triangle Busted!

New, 1 comment

Here's one way for the city to push ahead on that controversial Willets Point redevelopment: arrest the nonbelievers! A morning raid on the Iron Triangle on December 3rd resulted in 16 arrests and the seizing of 75 vehicles. Why do the authorities suddenly care about the chop shops? Said one business owner, "The city wants us out so they can hand the property over to private developers as soon as possible." The illegal activity might also have had something to do with it.
