LET'S NOT BE HASTY: N.Y. Comptroller John Liu said that the city “should not reject foreign money out of hand” to fund a proposed MLS stadium in Queens. Liu, referring to reports of a potential investment in the project by EPL club Manchester City Owner Sheik Mansour bin Zayed al-Nahyan, said, “I always prefer New Yorkers, but on the other hand, these guys seem to be very deep pocketed. So hopefully taxpayers won’t have to subsidize a single penny of the project.” In N.Y., Annie Karni noted Liu, a candidate for mayor, “still opposes the entirety of the plan because the details of a proposed land swap are unclear.” But Liu “does not have a formal role in the uniform land use review procedure for the project” (CRAINSNEWYORK.com, 4/30).
