No More Low-Income

Dear Editor;

As the president of the Beachside Bungalow Preservation Association, I am appalled by the insensitivity of what is occurring on Beach 24 street adjacent to the ocean. The building of 122 low income apartments will have a great impact on the residents of our bungalow colony. Beach 24 street is
a narrow dead end street with limited parking especially during the summer months. I am concerned about the many children who play on the street and the added congestion that this new housing project will bring.

In addition, Beach 24 street is a unique community of working class and multi-ethnic people. At this time, we are using our meager financial
resources in the courts to try to stop this construction because the wealthy
developers of this low income housing project are disregarding our easement rights. However, our main concern is that this six story building will have a negative impact on the present residents of the bungalow colony, many who have lived here for many years. We are asking the Rockaway community for their
political support so as to stop this project.

JANET RASHES
