DSC_1203

The walls are up at the future site of the Seba Avenue Comfort Station. The station will be the first fully “green” comfort station in a NYC park.

    Are we sure that is a comfort station? It looks a bit too clinical, maybe they used the interior tiles on the outside by mistake. It looks more like a pill box, maybe this is the first step of entrenchment. On a related note, what makes it 100% green are the sewer pipes attached to the sinks or something? Is the thing reclaiming water from somewhere ?

    It’s such a great thing up in the park, and great to have there during the little league games but…. I think by little league season starts the thing is going to be destroyed by the lovely kids we have in GB. I’m not talking about the kids from north of knapp St that come and use the skate park… They seem to be well behaved when I’m at Seba Park with my son.

      Really? Dislike? You guys honestly think the bathrooms stand a chance of being functional within 6 months of opening??? Will never happen. We cant even hold on to our bus shelters for better than a month.

    Let’s see how fast Gerritsen Beach can destroy it. I give it 2 months. And GB.net will have months of material because of it ;)

    I hate for it to be true but is it gonna be 2 holes in the ground with hand sanitizer at the door? I hope this is not what we lobbied for 1.3 million dollars. Lets face it we are so not important to anyone as they continuously and blantenly throw it in our faces. First there were the street lines (instead of a traffic light), then there was the skate park that we never requested with the 5 foot high toddler telescopes, then the comfort station long past ever due that is now a green station. Still no real toddler park, no fences, no lights, and no authority oops sorry no they do give summonses to our cars and buildings. COME ON PEOPLE SERIOUSLY !!!!!!!!!!!

      Is “2 holes in the ground with hand sanitizer at the door” what ‘green’ means to you? Wow, that’s pretty ignorant.

    Different subject does anybody know who was driving the dark colored bronco that tried to break through the access gate at Larry Veling field Saturday night at 11:30 PM.

    This is the second time this happened within a month. You know they want to drive on the ball field and ruin whatever they can.
    Dan do a story on this let’s get this out there maybe some body knows some names.

    I urge the NYPD to put the police tower on the avenue and get the cameras rolling.

    • anon

      Even if someone knows the names doesn’t mean they are going to give them up. As for the tower, ha, we blew it when we complained on fourth of July. Other neighborhoods welcome the nypd but all this hood does is dog them.

    Can you tell me why a group of 15/16 year olds can be walking up Seba Avenue at 4:00 in the afternoon with a full keg? They clearly are having trouble carrying it so it is full. Who sold this to them?? Or perhaps did a store sell it to an adult and it got handed over to the “children”? Where are they going to drink it??? They are our own kids from Gerritsen Beach for sure. Recognize all of them.

    • dawn

      so stop complaining online and take action-tell their parents! Duh!

    • anon

      They are going back weeds to drink it while waiting for the “green” comfort station opens up. The parents did it when they were young so in this neighborhood it’s OK for them too.

      ive seen alot of the local kids in the drink distributer on utica lately. they do ID though, ive been IDed and im 40, so they have someone getting it for them if they are underage.

  • WOODSY

    Who will be the key master

  • whatever

    So when they gonna paint it green?

  • Curious

    Who will be responsibile for maintaining it (keeping it clean we hope)?

  • chris

    We need to form a citizens watch in this community. Walk around with bats waiting for these drug addicted punks to try something and get em. We all know the 61 and 63 do not care at all about what these kids do. It’s time we arm ourselves and go hunting!

    • Pretty Girl

      I concur, if the cops won’t do anything about these issues then you have to take the law into your own hands, why do we have to be victimized by this insanity?

  • dawn

    You know what? My sons played little league in GB. I’m Irish Catholic originally from Marine Park. I think it is one of the nicest neighbohoods and we love the skate park.

    Don’t you people have anything better to do than complain about a so-called “green comfort station”?
    My concern was that it was a 24 hour facility. That would be an issue.

    Take on more important issues, such as the kids hauling kegs down Gerritsen Ave.

    Get over yourselves!

  • Hippith

    Anon, why do you care so much about kids carrying a keg is it hurting you in any way. Let the kids have a few beers.

  • anonymous

    Why was six… 15-16 year old african american teens in the little kids park next to the skate park on a school day around 11:00 a.m ( I know it was a school day because both my kids were in school and so were the other kids on the block ) shouldn’t they be in school?? With our new park shouldn,t there be a park employee there to make sure NO ONE is just there hanging out during school hours except for the little ones.
