A hidden enclave in the shadow of baseball‘s new Mets Stadium, the neighborhood of Willets Point, Queens, is an industrial zone fated for demolition. Filled with scrapyards and auto salvage shops, lacking sidewalks or sewage lines, the area seems ripe for tourist development. But Foreign Parts discovers a strange community where wrecks, refuse and recycling form a thriving commerce. The film observes the struggle of a contested “eminent domain” neighborhood before its disappearance underthe capitalization of New York‘s urban ecology.
