Thanks For Nothing Parks

Dear Editor:

If the boardwalk had been repaired after Irene, it would have stood-up to Sandy. Many residents believe it would still be there. The Parks Department did nothing to repair it. They did nothing all summer for that matter. Garbage cans on the boardwalk were overflowing with garbage, same with the cans on the beach if you could find one. Weeds were growing between the boards, the ramps were covered by weeds, garbage and dog droppings and it’s still a filthy mess.

The garbage and weeds on Beach Channel Drive, to and from the bridge, is still there from last summer. That must be a great job, riding around all summer doing nothing and getting paid for it.

Let’s not forget the bike lane. The benches were moved for a bike lane that never happened. Hopefully Whalemena will be rebuilt. She’s missed by many. And to Michael Benn…. do the right thing for Rockaway and don’t invite Mike Bloomberg. He’s not wanted or welcome in Rockaway’s parade.
