City to use eminent domain to evict beach club
My name is Joshua Jakob, and I am from New Dorp Beach, in Staten Island.
Cedar Grove Beach Club has been a member of my community for 99 years, but Parks wants to evict everyone off of the land they took via eminent domain for a highway that will never be built. They tore down over 200 homes in the 1960's and then left the land vacant and overgrown so that car thieves and drug addicts could have a place to hide, while allowing the beach to be covered in trash and the broken concrete remains of the buildings they tore down. I am trying to help the members save their beach and save my beach. Please help in any way you can. They have to leave on September 30th.
Save Cedar Grove Beach Club
I think before the end of his term, Bloomberg will have used eminent domain on all of the middle class. He wants us out in a bad way. The rest of the sordid story is here.
