Forest Hills Tennis Club In Deal To Sell Famous Stadium – WSJ

August 2, 2010 3 comments

The article in The Wall St. Journal says local Forest Hills developer Cord Meyer will build residential units within the stadium, incorporating some of the elements of the structure into the design. However, this still depends on a vote by the West Side Tennis Club’s members on August 19th. The development plans will be presented to the membership at an informational meeting to be held on August 10th.

If this plan goes through, it will be a truly sad, sad day for Forest Hills, which will see its most famous landmark destroyed–and one with enormous potential through the hosting of tennis tournaments, concerts and cultural events–to bring all kinds of new business to our retailers and restaurants, many of whom are struggling in this horrific economy, and it will be a truly sad day for New York City, which will lose another of its most famous sites. When will these people ever learn? See my previous post for ways you can help Save the Stadium! I include the email addresses of several officials to contact.
