A protest march was held in Queens Sunday against Mayor Bloomberg’s proposal for development of park land.

Under the plan, Flushing Meadows-Corona Park would get a major facelift.

Changes include a 1.4 million square foot mall, two new stadiums, concert venues, new parking garages, and new roads.

Many people who live in the area are against the loss of land, the construction and the traffic and the inconvenience it would create.
