I have lived in East Meadow for more than 30 years and in the past five years I have seen the area around Hempstead Turnpike turn into a real dump with empty stores, homeless people and panhandlers.
I have always paid my taxes and expect that this entire strip be cleaned up or, even better, widen the turnpike and get all of the bars and other sordid stores off the road. is a typical example of trash. The tattoo around his neck is a dead giveaway. He probably belongs to a gang.
I am friendly with Gary Hudes and Norma Gonzalez and have made my position very clear. Get the trash off the road or else East Meadow will wind up like East New York, Brooklyn. Establish a group like the Guardian Angels and have them patrol the turnpike and rid the area of trash and these outsiders who belong in prison.
Let us see what is done because I do not want to pay taxes to live in an area where fear and blight are becoming the norm.
