It is a pleasure to shop on Myrtle Avenue, in Ridgewood. Clean streets, benches to sit on, Garbage Canisters always emptied, thanks to the Property Association and the wonderful discount program to all business owners if they would like to advertise in the local papers. Now lets get down and talk real dirty. Which leads me to Metropolitan Avenue, between 80 street to 73place, in Middle Village,Ny. Streets seem dirty, garbage overflows by Friday into Monday mornings on every street corner, making shopping on the weekend doable but to the eyes of residents and their children a mess to constantly look at. Why? With 1 Family homes at half a million dollars, up to $900,000 dollars, a Property association, a Civic association, a chamber of commerce association, and two politicians' offices right in the area.

Senator Addabbo, and City councilwoman, Elizabeth Crowley.

Even a 10 block long park, that is always being renovated, and now having 10 Banks in the Community, we have an Eyesore!

This has been written about on the TOPIX -Middle Village site since almost 10 months ago. Doesn't any Community leader want to take care of this and have their picture taken after the clean up to get recognition? You should see how many tickets are issued daily by meter men/women on Metro. They add to the enjoyment of shopping on the Avenue too. Well, I guess its time for a complete changing of the guards, from Politicians to Group organizations within the Community! (04/25/12)
