First, living next to the city park, Schoenbar and the ballfield I notice every other car speeding all day and night long. When I notified the police, and city I was told that it is not a school zone and nothing could be done. As baseball season is here, there are children all over and I am worried something will happen.
My second issue is I have been walking the kids and dog down Married Man's Trail on a daily basis. It is a beautiful walk and tourists also use this trail. There are numerous homeless intoxicated men that stay in the woods at the bottom of Cape Fox Lodge. We started calling it "Drunk Man's Trail" it makes me feel uncomfortable and unsafe to walk even with my dog.
Can something be done about either of these issues? Does anyone else care? I have tried to bring it to the City and Borough attention but seem to get nowhere. Thank You.
