Statement By State Senator Carl Kruger

State Senator Carl Kruger, who represents sections of Brooklyn, recently released a press release concerning the new Aviator Sports and Recreation Complex currently being constructed in Floyd Bennett Field.

In the release, Senator Kruger said, "Today's press conference at Floyd Bennett Field gave the media a first glimpse of the new Aviator Sportsplex. I wish Aviator Sports well and am always excited about new opportunities to develop the long neglected and overlooked Gateway National Park."

The Senator went on to say, "I cannot comment on the actual proposal since I share with the community the common ground that we have never formally seen the facility or had input into its plans. I hope that further development will occur with the partnership of the broader community- not just the developers. Transparency ensures public confidence. As Supreme Court Justice Loud Brandeis once said, 'Sunlight is the best disinfectant.'"
