Lately, my Forest Hills neighborhood has become a hive of civic activity. Citizen groups have been created on a variety of issues- preservation, Queens Blvd safety, train noise, and subway service. If I had to choose a pet cause, it would be the Flushing River. It appears that every waterway in our city has a conservation group dedicated to it, there's the Bronx River Alliance, Gowanus Dredgers Canoe Club, Harlem River Festival, Udalls Cove Preservation Committee... Why not start a Flushing River Alliance or Flushing Riverkeepers?
