I know it's a long shot, but I can't think of a better place for Metros to have a stadium than Long Island City. First of all, the reason I think it's even remotely possible is b/c NYC is planning to have its Olympic Village there should our city win the Olympics. Which makes me think, that there's a fair amount of land available to build something of size. Then, around it, you could develop a whole neighborhood - kind like DUMBO and other Greenwich Village / SoHo wanna-be neighborhoods in the borroughs. So, in the event that NYC Olympic bid fails, it's at least on option worth discussing. The benefits of stadium there are immense - it's close to all other borroughs and reachable by mass transit from Manhattan, New Jersey, Long Island. And the highway is nearby too. It could definitely become a hub of a new nieghborhood (what Brooklyn Nets are trying to accomplish). And it's in New York City. No matter the fact that most of current Metro attendees come from Jersey, everyone knows that if you REALLY want to be on the New York map (as in corporate, luxury boxes, etc), you have to be geographically in NYC (obviously NFL is an aberration). Two problems: (1) there's no reason to believe that NYC would devote a piece of potentially such valuable land to a meaningless soccer team and (2) certainly NYC isn't putting a penny into the project. To this, I can only say that (1) it's worh a try and (2) if I'm Metros owner, I'd rather pony up for the whole cost in NYC than a portion in NJ (no offense to my NJ neighbors, but business is business).
