The Willet's Point Neighborhood, also known as the Iron Triangle, is situated directly next to Citi Field, where the Met's play baseball, and is known for both its car repair shops and lack of paved roads. The future of the neighborhood has been a contentious issue between residents and the city, as the city hopes to further develop the land despite protests from its residents.
