This letter is being written to the parents whose children loiter at the beach walls and on the beach after dark. If you believe that these are not your children, think again. They are all neighborhood residents.
On the evening of Wednesday, June 7, my porch furniture was stolen. Specifically, two adirondack chairs that were hand made by a very dear friend. In speaking to my neighbors, it was concluded that there was a "keg" party on the beach between 135 and 136 streets. My chairs were last seen at the party site Thursday morning. I was informed of this too late as the chairs were already gone. Not only has a robbery been committed, but also residents are constantly being disturbed at all hours of the night. At 12:30 a.m. Thursday morning, a neighbor was awoken by four police cars and a "gang" of drunken youths, who not only disturb the peace, but also leave their garbage on the beach, in our yards, and on the street for us to clean up.
The police have been called many times in the past due to these situations. However, it is the parents responsibility to know where their children are and what they are doing. Could you tolerate this type of behavior near your home? As summer approaches and school comes to an end, these episodes only increase.
Parents, please help us help our neighborhood.
