Rockaway: The Neglected Stepchild

Dear Editor,

There have been too many; too long, letters lately, so I’ll try to make this short. The median on Beach Channel Drive between Beach 116 Street and Beach 108 Street is pathetic. New, young trees are being planted everywhere and that bare, dirt strip deserves some TLC!

You have time to notice it because you have to slow down just in front of the Post Office and in front of the Duane Reade, because the pot holes are so deep they make you teeth chatter as you go around them.

And, The Wave headlines tell us that the eyesore SRO on Beach 116 Street has been sold for an SRO! Is the Planning Board asleep? Oh, poor Rockaway! Doesn’t anyone care? And how about fixing the clock in front of our local Post Office; that thing hasn’t worked in years!
