Creedmoor of concern to local citizens
From CBS 2:
A Queens community says it has grown impatient with some patients at a famed mental health facility near their neighborhood.
They say incident involving patients range from scary to downright gross.
Matt Kruger told CBS2’s Jessica Borg the scenes he captured in a cellphone video are the reason he’s moving out of Glen Oaks.
“No one wants to see someone’s pants down to their ankles, in broad daylight, then going to the bathroom in the middle of the street,” he said.
He showed Borg the video – too graphic for TV – that showed a man doing just that right around the corner from his home.
“It’s inappropriate,” he said. “There’s kids, there’s families.”
Aggressive panhandling is also a growing concern for neighbors of a shopping plaza on Union Turnpike.
