Letters Only Baxter Knows
Only God knows why John Baxter (in his letter to the editor of 12/17/2010), gratuitously dragged me into his on-going battle with the Rockaway community.
I help many landlords all over NYC select their tenants. I am pretty good at it because there are few complaints against the tenants I recommend. I never helped any tenants move in to (or out of) any property on Beach 116 Street.
Furthermore, I have never had the pleasure of working with Mr. Baxter or Mr. Deutchman.
Although I have been a member of Community Board 14 for more than 20 years, it is not my role to welcome anybody to the community.
Regarding the future of the hotels on Beach 116 Street, please take note that I was a vocal advocate for zoning on Beach 116 Sreet that would encourage the elimination of the hotels.
When they are gone, property values in the area can only increase. The neighbors, who have endured for decades, will finally obtain some relief.
