Dedication Of The Statues & The Huntington Station Plaza
Just our opinion:
After seeing the above photo do you really need to ask why the Huntington Station revitalization can’t move forward? At the press conference Supervisor Petrone said that he wants people to come and walk the plaza. At least that’s what we think he said because we couldn’t hear well over the heavy traffic volume. If we heard correctly Supervisor Petrone said the entire project cost $800,000. We wonder how many first time home buyers could have received down payment assistance to buy a home nearby. This is something that would lead to true revitalization. It probably is just about enough money to open the STEM school. (Yes we know, it’s not the same funds).
All in all it wasn’t a total waste. It caused Legislator D’Amaro to show his face in Huntington Station. I think the last time we saw him, he was promising to clean up the crime in Huntington Station before we ended up closing our school. We predict he’ll be back along with a few others, knocking people over to get in a photo with the adored HUFSD Superintendent Jim Polansky if and when the new STEM school opens.
From the looks on their faces in the photos, do you want to risk the traffic and endure the noise to have a seat there?
Disclaimer: We really do not hold any of this against the artist. She clearly put her heart and soul into creating something for our community. In a different time and place, this is something that would have been cherished by all. She is just a victim of being tied to these inept leaders, just like the rest of us.
