As a resident of Kings Park with a passion for the community in which I live I look around the town and say; what is going on? Take a trip down Main Street and you are met with empty businesses and others just holding on. The tumbleweed is hours away from blowing in the streets. Our community needs a good defibrillator to shock some energy once again into it's streets.
Long gone are the days of the Kings Park Fireman's Fair, shopping at Ben Franklin or keeping the business in Kings Park. The Psychiatric Center lay dormant for nearly 15 years with talks of asbestos and costs to revitalize just being too much. Please don't forget we were able to defeat a Nazi Germany, Imperial Japan and a Fascist Italy from December 7, 1941 to August 14th, 1945 (less than 4 years) and today it takes 15+ years to talk about potentially doing something.
Here's the good news...we can change all of this. We are Kings Parkers. Let's work together to make this town great again. The apathetic approach to life in Kings Park is a cancer and it must be killed. We have a great town with even greater people in it. Let's do business with one another when possible. Let's fix up the community in which we live. Let's get involved. I want to thank you for reading my first of (hopefully) many blog posts. I welcome any and all suggestions in an effort to work together in making Kings Park great again.
