Hundreds show for Sunnyside Yard talks

With geological forces not creating more buildable real estate in New York City for the foreseeable future, much attention has been turned to the Sunnyside Yard rail depot to see if apartments, schools and parks can be built in decks over portions of the 180-acre site.

More than 200 people turned out at PS 166, the Henry Gradstein Elementary School, on Tuesday night to see just what Amtrak, which owns the site, and the New York City Economic Development Corp., which is managing the study, said was the next step in crafting a long-term master plan for the site and surrounding communities.
