Once again our community was misled by the owner, Mr. Jay Deutchman of the old Rockaway Park Hotel at 158 Beach 116th Street. A face to face meeting with Deutchman was held with some Community leaders at Assemblyman Phil Goldfeder’s office and Deutchman said “I would put something there to benefit the Community as long as it pays my mortgage”. This will not benefit our community. Mr. Deutchman, in my opinion and others, it will adversely affect the Beach 116th Street corridor and make it potentially an unsafe condition for the residents (especially the children), businesses and the shoppers. Mr. Deutchman the way you’re choosing to use your property is making it very difficult for those who own businesses there to move forward especially after super storm Sandy.
