Jets touch down at Chelsea Park
Members of the Jets football team held what was billed as the first annual Jets Fest at Chelsea Park last weekend. There were skills games for kids and a chance to meet the players. Some local residents also showed up to voice their opposition to the citys plan to build a stadium for the Jets and the Olympics over the West Side Rail Yards. Above, Jesse Scalesi, 5, tossed the pigskin as Brooks Bollinger of the Jets looked on.
Adam Honigman, a Community Board 4 member from Hells Kitchen, is against the stadium.
