I’m an enormous fan. Thank you for shining a light on the problems in this sorry, run-down borough.
I took these pictures at Bowne Park in Flushing this morning. The two dead turtles are about 10” and 15” in length. Look at how filthy the water is.
I walk my dog and pick up garbage with a number of friends at Bowne every morning. We have lately been seeing a lot of dead squirrels and turtles. The park is poorly maintained with rarely a Dept. of Parks presence. Please note today’s addition of a discarded mattress.
We’re all so pleased that the Dept. of Parks allocated 500K for an additional bocce court when they can’t even afford a minimum wage full-time employee!!! Could you please post these pictures and possibly embarrass the hell out of our local pols and the Parks Dept.?
Thank you so much.
Hi Crappy -
I sent the two Bowne Park pix to Tony Avella and he wrote a letter
addressing the situation on the same day! He's just an amazingly great guy!
