Building Projects In Rockaway
I want to thank The Wave for keeping the ABTS, YMCA and Stop and Shop project in the news. The bottom line is, a community center and pool are long overdue for the Rockaways. For way too long, we have been ignored and dumped on (deteriorating nursing homes, mental facilities, a disaster of a boardwalk, housing projects that breed violence and two unjust tolls, just to name a few).
Reading the article, I found it sad that our Community Board advisor seems to be taking the side of the developer in this situation, even criticizing the community members that have "the good fight." Shame on him! The article also seems to suggest that we will not be getting a facility with a pool or even a YMCA brand. If this is the case, then the developers should take their false advertising signs down.
