Letters to the Editor

Letter: No sympathy

Recently, there have been multiple letters to the editor bemoaning the fact that a multitude of homeless people are now residing at Centennial Park and in their neighborhood area. All the letter writers are sure to first protest against the homeless living conditions to then very quickly turn their ire to how they feel about the increasing homeless individuals and all the glory they bring with them in and around their neighborhoods.

I am so very sorry you have had to put up with this inconvenience and ugliness over the last two months. We living in the area of the Sullivan Arena have had to live with it for more than two years. Come to think of it, I do not feel sorry for you — better you than us.
