It's getting hot and summers problems are simmering. Once again we are faced with the same old parking dilemma. I remember a simpler time when there was parking on both sides of the street. Although it was due to faded signs and apathetic enforcement, it was nice. Is it really such a big deal to share the
road (or in this case curb) with someone who is down for the day (D.F.D)? I have heard thoughts that it is for "Emergency Vehicle Access." If anyone has been to downtown Brooklyn (ie. Pineapple street) or perhaps a little closer right over the bridge in Broad Channel, we know this is not the case, unless of course they have smaller firetrucks and ambulances. I ask, are we actually cutting off our nose to spite our face? Is it so distasteful to have someone not Rockaway born park near our beach? Is it better to not move your car all weekend? Is this a choice made by the people of the "Holland "area of Rockaway?
Last but not least I ask the people of Rockaway is this something we can change or is it something that we must accept? Thank you for any feedback.
