Who's their competition at this point? It would be worth it for the photographic opportunity.

That's a whole lot of land taken up by useless water, trees and foliage. Why can't Benepe and his master, Commissar Death and taxes, remove these trees, drain the water, lay down artificial turf and concrete and transform this idle land into athletic facilities?

Have they no concern at all for the severe obesity problem here in NY? Have they no imagination to get these kids off the couch, away from their play stations, and into some athletics?

No tag. No hide and do seek. No dodgeball. No Simon Says. Nothing competitive that will result in so many losers. Just standstill athletics. With footwear, so that the artificial turf won't burn.
