Our Right To Prosper

Dear Editor,

So, they’re trying to take away our right to breathe – yes, breathe! And prosper.

Teddy Roosevelt, in 1905, initiated the National Parks System for America’s people to enjoy, not so that these grounds could be priced out of our hands.

This would eliminate use of the Little League baseball field at Fort Tilden, and threaten our great theatrical performances, the wonderful art shows and lessons, and many, many other public-serving events.

In the Rockaways, we have next to nothing for entertainment. Is there to be no more grandeur, just greed?

I will protest: This is our Land.
