It comes as no surprise that the new beach bathrooms and lifeguard palaces are proving how unsuitable they are during their first summer in Rockaway. No doubt the next revelation will be that their purchase at enormous tax payer expense enriched some politician’s brother-in-law.
But the really bad news is that rather than admitting a mistake and going back to the drawing board with community input, the city will now spend millions of dollars to fix these faulty and out of place Winnebagoes in the sky. Meanwhile none of our local elected representatives have summoned the courage to criticize Bloomberg’s Folly even while they ask for our votes in an election year.
But two faced politicians wasting taxpayers’ money is nothing new in this city.
