Not a fan of this proposal. More traffic on old country road and round swamp. It's too congested now. And do we need more unsold homes in the area

What does this plan mean for the Islanders, and what benefits will it provide to the taxpayers of Nassau County? My understanding is Mr Wang is not easy to do business with and this is why the Coliseum deal never got done. Is there anyone out there that can get Nassau heading in the right direction without getting involved in the usual patronage and corruption of Nassau County?
