It's so sad that this is the condition that our "central park" is allowed to linger in. These politicians and commissioners have no shame.

A place that rose from the ashes looks as though it being converted back into a heap of junk.

Hard to believe that 2 world's fairs were held here....how disgraceful.

I agree with the duck.

The only weapons of mass destruction located in the park are the commissioners and pseudo-commissioners who neglect it.

These "wonderful" scenes are brought to by the three stooges of the NYC Department of Parks: Adrian Benepe, Estelle Cooper and Dorothy Lewandowski.

Note:

Correction--
The operator of the roller rink at the NYSP in the 1970's was really beaten up with a bat, and his dog was not hung over a bridge but thrown in the lake with a cinder block around his neck.

This was done by the hoods from Corona then, not a union connection as stated.
