New Poll: The Tennis Stadium’s Future

    As Chairman of Rego-Forest Preservation Council, I voted “other.”
    The nationally & internationally iconic Forest Hills Tennis Stadium merits City & State Landmark status, which would commemorate its history and recognize its prestige. It would help open the door towards funding, undergo a restoration, and should undergo a multi-use creative revitalization, including tennis matches, concerts, weddings, exhibits, school trips, charity events, art festivals, etc. It would abide with its original yet proven mission as “America’s Tennis Stadium” according to a 1922 ad. Preservation and creative reuse would bring the entire community closer together, boost tourism, convey historic pride, educate our children, and be great for local businesses. This would yield a greater economic return in the long-run. Condos are a short-sighted solution to settle a debt, but history is forever. Let’s realize the larger picture, referring to future generations, the tennis and music greats, and an architectural first countrywide by famed architect Kenneth Murchison. Typical condos represent “Anytown USA,” but this is a landmark opportunity for something truly unique for ALL.

    Demolition of an icon for condos = Penn Station case of Queens, catering to a select few condo owners, burdening our infrastructure, overcrowding of schools, and future regrets.
