Disgusting Beaches

Dear Editor,

Our beaches are becoming disgusting and unhealthy because neighborhood residents are using it as a place to allow their dogs to crap and do not pick it up after them.

Also if you sit on the boardwalk, and I can speak from actual experience from Beach 121 to 129 during the course of the day you will see 6 to 12 dogs including pit bulls off the leash and some being aggressive.

I’ve also witnessed our 100 Pct. vehicles patrolling on the boardwalk just ignoring the situation. I understand they usually have more important duties but if all they are doing is patrolling they should enforce all laws.

I also approached a patrol car sitting on Rockaway Beach Boulevard, advised the officers that a large dog off his leash on Beach 125 aggressively approached my grandson and I, and only stopped a few feet from us when his owner had to yell at it to. The situation really scared my grandson and truthfully me too!
