Designing for Gold
"With the decision on a site for the 2012 Summer Games still nearly two years away, New York's bid committee opened a competition to design an Olympic Village if the city wins the games....The privately financed Olympic Village--to house more than 16,000 athletes, coaches and officials--would be built on at least 36 acres on the East River in Queens, across from the United Nations. After the Olympics, it would become housing for about 18,000 New Yorkers. The land is jointly controlled by the city, the state and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey."
