BP Katz proposes renaming Willets Point station

BP Katz has asked the MTA to consider renaming the Willets Point/Mets Station stop to a name which references Flushing Meadows Corona Park, which she called “the number one destination of most riders who use the station.”

Jean Silva, president of the Flushing Meadows-Corona Park Conservancy, said on Thursday she supported the idea.

“I think it’s a great idea considering well over the majority who get off the train are going to Flushing Meadows,” she said. “That’s why people get off at that stop.”

We’ve reached out to the MTA for comment.
