Letter from the Riverdale Press:
My son has to register in January, then pray that there’s room for him in his kindergarten class in September at PS 81. Riverdale’s getting crowded. Builders are cashing in on the name, and in the process changing it to a high-density area. So Riverdale isn’t the wonderful place it was.
This is our neighborhood. Builders with big plans should in the future be required to pay all costs associated with their projects, such as increases in sewerage, education, police, more transportation and roads, rather than expect the locals or even the city to foot the bill. And certainly, builders should have to put up money to provide for the restoration of the neighborhood should things go awry.
