Fecal freaks in Douglas Manor

Most of the Floating Heads have been swimming here for well over 50 years, in the shadow of the Throgs Neck and Whitestone Bridges, in waters fed by New York City’s East River. But lately their beloved waters have drawn concern.

This summer, the city’s Department of Health and Mental Hygiene has identified the beach as having the highest levels of pollution in the city, specifically fecal bacteria counts, which spike after heavy rains cause the city’s sewer system — feces and all — to overflow directly into these waters, posing a serious health risk.

The water at the beach exceeded acceptable bacteria count levels by 20 percent, according to a study released this week by the Natural Resources Defense Council.

City officials have already told beach operators to close it to swimmers from June 13 to July 18 because water quality did not meet acceptable standards. It has since been upgraded to a day-to-day advisory — with “swimming and bathing not recommended” for 48 hours after a significant rainfall.

Advisory updates are routinely posted at the gatehouse, and routinely ignored by the Floating Heads, and just about every other water-bound resident of Douglas Manor.

That would be Dougliston Manor.
Thats what happens when "certain people" cover acres of green with tile and concrete.

The Forest Hills/Bayside-Little Neck/ Infection has been moving east for quite a wile.

The storm drains now fill the LI sound at 3-4X GPH !!
Then add all your Martini sipping boaters with twin 440's who cant afford ga$ $$$ or get rid of head waste pro pump-outs.

Big aft partys on the slips evey weekend.
They just discharge into the bays.

NO it is Douglas Manor, often referred to as DouglAston Manor by morons like yourself who think they know what they are talking about, but it actually is just Douglas.

Actually in Douglas Manor,
I believe, all the household "P&P" (piss & poop) goes into septic tanks.

They're not hooked up to the NYC
sewer system.

And I don't see much "tile and concrete" or paving over green space in the area.

What brand of Gin do you use in your Martinis "Joe"?

It looks like you are the sheep that has been asleep.... that hideous orange thing of a house owned by the ball player is nowhere near Douglas Manor. It is in fact in Little Neck Hills off the service road of the Long Island Expressway. And if any house is visible from the LIRR station, it is NOT Douglas Manor, contrary to popular belief. It is Either Doug Bay, or Douglaston Hills. And the previous poster was correct, the houses in Douglas Manor, do in fact have septic systems. They are not connected to the sewer system. AND, as you know, since it is a historic district, a new hideous house is not easy to build. They have to follow strict guidelines. Several new homes were built in the neighborhood in the past 5 or 6 years, and they were done beautifully, with large yards and nice windows.

Actually,
I've been awake for most of my nights and days in Flushing "Joe".

I don't currently (or ever lived) in "DM".

Now go and wipe your ass fella, that's the part of your body where
you park your hat!

They're makin' them dumber each day.
