Letter to Mayor Bloomberg

Letter to Mayor Bloomberg

Dear Mayor;

In reference to: Why the quick "removal" of a Holy Site that people think was "torched"? Maybe a synagogue in a garden should replace it there with monument to record presence of the original? Two Hawthornees in Triangle was a nice touch Greenstreets forgot.

The "Torching of Congregation Derech Emunah (yesterday quote from a Jew who does not live in Rockaway and a businessman) waited for your Mayoralty and is linkable (if true) to a cliqu e view of progress as valuable real estate is released from a Holy Site.!" Hopefully there will be rebuilding on the site of a synagogue replacement with a monument that records the presence of the original. Will this be done?

That a stay of demolition (execution) to permit further investigation and remove all doubt of intrigue that the quote generates  WAS NOT PROLONGED  is unfortunate! How many others are wondering  as issues more important to Others are in the spotlight is hard to say.

My rights to have more information and first hand have been violated as have other rights in governance! The WTC disaster/587/Congregation Derech Emunah fire/ quick demolition of  out of the way in the way synagogue is part of a sequence not yet complete!

Rockaway is sure darn interesting. Thank you for your kind attention and in advance for response.

Respectfully

Attn: The Hawthorne Trees in the triangle was a nice touch that Grenstreets forgot and then pointed to curb absence& .It s a sad excuse given available planting holes (two) an 2 tree bases with planting space available ample! There should be a replacement synagogue in a garden with monument to record presence of a Holy Site since 1904. Otherwise the fire represents the removal of synagogue around which so much topsoil was confiscated and deceptively financed by federal and city funds. MY rights violated by this too!
