Can you believe these and the twisted priority of Four Freedoms Park Conservancy - "Please excuse our barricades" - REALLY?? What happened to Please marvel at this miracle of nature? (Look closely in the 3rd picture to see just that).

Please excuse our temporary barricades.Did you know the FDR Park Conservancy is holding a Summer Garden Party fundraiser on June 4. Tickets range from $250 to $10 Thousand. Will they allow people to eat and drink on their Kahn "Sacred Space" at the fundraiser? As one Roosevelt Island resident put it:
A mother Canada goose is currently nesting under one of our Littleleaf Linden Trees. The father Canada goose is protecting the nest and can be very aggressive.
To protect both the goose family and our visitors we have barricaded the nest until the eggs hatch. Please respect the barricades and follow the directions of Four Freedoms Park Rangers during this time.
No food and drink in the Park -- unless you buy a $250 ticket to a fundraiser.Wonder how much the Roosevelt Island Operating Corp (RIOC) will charge the FDR Park Conservancy for this event?
