FLUSHING, QUEENS -- Acres of industrial wasteland that have long line Flushing's waterfront could soon give way to a vibrant new downtown area complete with affordable housing, thanks to a special designation from the state. 

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo in June designated 62 acres of land in west downtown Flushing as a "Brownfield Opportunity Area," a title that helps neighborhoods fast-track transformations of polluted industrial sites into housing or business developments that could drive economic growth. 

"This Brownfield Opportunity Area program gives local leaders the power to bring about much-needed change to properties that have been neglected within their communities," Cuomo said.
