While Brooklyn's Crown Heights used to be infamous for its high poverty and crime rates, the neighborhood is experiencing a much-deserved revival thanks to its lovely architecture and incredible cultural attractions like the Brooklyn Children's Museum, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, the Brooklyn Museum and the northeastern edge of Prospect Park. ... more

In Wading River, the Wading River beach is open to residents as public beach in the town of Riverhead with proof of residency you can obtain a parking sticker and park at the beach. There is a bathing area in front of the life guard stand with an area that is roped off and for bathing. However, if you park in the lot with the permit and then walk on the access road immediately to the east of the parking lot you can walk your dog down to the water and then keep walking it east along the beach as long as you don't go any farther up towards the dunes than the last high water line. This is New York State Law that residences(and their leashed pets) have access to the beach as long as you stay between the water and the high tide water line (which you can see with line line of debris along the beach such as rocks, seaweed and driftwood, etc.)

Also, a number of Suffolk County Parks, including Smith Point Park in Shirley allow pets in certain areas, especially if you are camping there.

Congrats on knowing that, Luke. It's about 40 years since I read that book and I didn't live in Brooklyn then.

I'd have to say 3 green spaces. Albert is right - Prospect Park and the Botanical Gardens for sure, but Greenwood Cemetary is a big green space as well. It's not a gloomy place, nor was it ever. Before there were parks, Victorian people picnicked in the cemetary and enjoyed the foliage and the statues. There are many notable people buried there. There are concerts held there and some great themed walking tours. I once went on a Halloween walking tour visiting the some of the more notorious long-term residents. Also notable is that the cemetary is the only part of Brooklyn that retains its original form - never leveled or artificial slopes put it. It's the way it was since the beginning of time.

If you're looking for a quick inexpensive ski day, especially for beginners and youngsters, Bousquet Ski area is located right off of route 7 in Pittsfield, Massachusetts.
While the slopes are not too challenging and the mountain itself is rather small, the cost is sometimes 30% or less than the larger, more populated mountains. There are lessons, rentals, tubing, cheap food (not too healthy, but hey, you're exercising!), a restaurant for better food and lots of shopping in Lenox, Pittsfield and Lee (outlet mall) if the weather turns against you.

A 1/2 hour closer, Catamount Ski, located on the New York/Mass border is right outside of Hillsdale, New York. More challenging and more expensive, it's trails are pretty well groomed.

Catamount is 2-1/2 hours from Brooklyn, Bousquet is 3.

By all means, contact NYC ParksDept. You may get quicker results by emailing them, and be put on the list. I believe they are very hard at work responding to the calls coming, but an email won't be overlooked. Also, notify environmental organizations, again I find the best results are through emails. Best of luck, and try a little patience with the volume of victims who also need assistance. ... more

Joseph Runfola answered:
Learn about your Community Board. Community Boards are local representative bodies. There are 59 throughout the City. Each Board consists of up to 50 members appointed by the Borough President, with half nominated by the City Council Members who represent the community district. Board members are selected by the Borough Presidents from among active, involved people of each community, with an effort made to assure that every neighborhood is represented. Board members must reside, work, or have some other significant interest in the community.
Boards meet once each month. At these meetings, members address items of concern to the community. Board meetings are open to the public, and a portion of each meeting is reserved for the Board to hear from members of the public. In addition, Boards regularly conduct public hearings - on the City's budget, on land use matters, and other major issues - to give the people of the community the opportunity to express their opinions.
Board committees do most of the planning and work on the issues that are acted on at Board meetings. Each Board establishes the committee structure and procedures it feels will best meet the needs of its district. Non-Board members may apply to join or work on Board committees.
