Queens pols: No baksheesh, no stadium

The haggling continues over the New York Mets stadium deal, with Queens councilmember Tony Avella saying, “I don’t think we’re close to an agreement” on community perks, while his colleague Hiram Montserrate declared that without a package like the Yankees coughed up, the Queens delegation is prepared to delay the stadium project “until it’s dead.” Crain’s New York reports that next Wednesday’s scheduled vote on the stadium bonds is “likely to be delayed”; as of now official word from the council is that it’s still on, but we’ve seen before how quickly these things can change.
