Brilliant. Have they considered replacing the grassy areas with astro turf? And where oh where is FDR's sculptural body? His head looks like he misses it.

I also started this facebook group to remind those who run the park they have taken away islanders access to the area by restricting hours and having over zealous rules. Like it if you support the message.
