Gonky Lampposts

Gonky Lampposts

Dear Editor;

I can't believe they're putting up gonky lampposts along the boardwalk to obstruct our beautiful ocean view.  Did I vote for this?  Who did?  Can anyone write in and enlighten me about it?  The joggers and tourists should love them.

What?  An improvement?  Let's see: they'll take up summer-space on an already narrow boardwalk, confound the joggers, annoy the tourists, ruin the view--and cost money!

If they have money to waste like that, they ought to hire a sandwich-board man to walk up and down in front of City Hall and petition for civic funds for Ferry Service.  With all the homes and apartments springing up like tulips all over the Rockaways, don't you think we need it?  We are slated for funds for this area and Mayor Bloomberg endorses Ferry Service, ergo, come on Mayor, shed a little light on that subject!

A motel for tourists is yet another subject to be addressed, and to a private interest--they'd probably make a bundle.
