Because its always been done that way is not a reason to keep it that way.The area is not the same as it was.People that use to live there, have passed away or moved away.The extended families that raised their children there have gone to more affordable areas.I was born and raised in Buchanan and my children were raised there for some years.It use to be a nice place.When I ride down that area now,its become dumpy.Plenty has changed.
There are enough parks and quiet streets to use during the day for health benefits.Obviously, the ones who do use the track are rare,because looking around the area there I see few interested in keeping fit.
Keeping children safe is the number one priority.Unfortunately we dont live in Mayberry anymore. View Comment
I was curious to know where the drug free zone is? Does a drug free zone actually exsist? The methadone clinic has been providing services in this area for over 20 years,but it seems most of the population in Peekskill didnt know this.Why are citizens of Peekskill concerned now?Why not last year or the year before?There are services provided for active addicts everyday at the Peekskill area health center.What makes this so different?Addiction is everywhere.There is a great need for these services to continue in this area.If there are 250 people getting treatment then why isnt everyone concerned about all the others who are not getting treatment?They are the majority out there.
