Douglaston civic wants new park

From Douglaston Patch:

The Doug Bay Manor Civic Association will discuss converting a local site into a park and improving the community’s business district during a meeting on July 26.

Topics at the meeting will include working with the Douglaston Local Development Corporation to improve the local business district and an ongoing project to turn a piece of land at the corner of 39th Avenue and 234th Street into a park.

Tom Pinto, the group’s president, said original plans for the site included a building and, later, a parking lot.

Now, the civic wants the locale to be turned into a park with benches for senior citizens and a path.

“We thought with the mayor’s green streets program, this would be perfect,” Pinto said. “But the city has never picked up on it.”

A perfect locale for the stored-St.Saviour's, no?

Looks like a great spot for a new mcmansion, or maybe a 99 cent store, a hookah joint or a new hotel with a trendy club on the roof!

That isn't Douglas Manor. But why let facts screw up a good snipe.
