From Sunnyside Post:
If you’re looking for a park to bring the family, then Lou Lodati Park is not for you.
The park, located on Skillman Ave. (between 42nd and 43rd), is the home to drunks, those who urinate under trees or expose themselves in front of people. Many residents have been complaining about these issues for years—from public defecation to gambling on soccer/volleyball games.
These events occur even when the public toilets are open, which are about 100 meters from the trees.
