The Iron Triangle

Willets Point is a chaotic little piece of land on the outskirts of Queens, adjacent to the Citi Field, the New York’s Mets new home.

This is where you go if you need to get your car fixed, get shiny rims or change your windscreen. Also known locally as the Iron Triangle, it is the largest single stretch of junkyards in New York, with hundreds of auto salvage yards, repair garages, waste facilities, warehouses, chop shops and auto parts stores.

The Bloomberg administration identified the Triangle as an area with tremendous growth potential and is planning to fabricate New York city’s next great neighborhood. The plan includes a luxurious hotel, a convention center and exciting new retail and entertainment amenities.

After more than fifty years of covetousness and unfulfilled redevelopment plans, the Iron Triangle’s days may soon be over.
