Great news. I'm all for it. Those who are crying about it need to shut the hell up. There's still plenty open space on the island. Besides, there is no better place in the city to put a water park - very centrally located between boros in a horribly underdeveloped area. It would be great if an amusement park opened nearby, and then the north part of the island would become New York's premier amusement area. Add some more areas and a "main street" in the middle with shopping and all that stuff, and you got a new focal point in the city. It's not like it's a pristine untouched natural park anyway, it's criss-crossed by a cluster**** of bridges already.
