Letters To The Editor
Seeking park at St. Saviour’s Dear Editor:
For more than four years, the people in Maspeth have been asking for the vacant St. Saviour’s site to be converted into a public park. It has been used as a makeshift parking lot and garbage dump during that time. The site is still available and since we have more people living here now than ever before, we need more green space now than ever before.
We notice that people who haven’t even moved to Brooklyn and Long Island City yet are getting parks. What about the families that have lived in Maspeth for generations?
I live across the street from the St. Saviour’s site in Maspeth. We would like to see this site become a park. We are being inundated with trucks spewing fumes and could use more trees to clean the air. There once were close to 200 trees on this site and they should be replaced.
Please work with Council Member Crowley to give something back to our community in return for hosting all the city agencies here in western Maspeth.
