“A”

Spend $11.5 million of tax payers money
when city budget has higher priorities than to develop a boat house and launch complex, for the rich.

Remove the pier which is used by wildlife, and helps protect the cove from the wake of the circle line which passes by six or more times daily.

Remove virtually all  trees and build an out door toilet
which will have to be maned to be safe and clean.

And force MTA workers to park on the street
or pay for parking.

“B”

Continue to be an active wildlife sanctuary;
and a site for human recreation
including live music, swimming, hiking,
walking, human powered watercraft;

Serve as a community center for public education, volunteering and community development.
