Well thats how they roll in Mastic: They make real stupid decisions and then regret them later on. Lets see how long before all the brothers show up on day, then we have a Whites vs Blacks at the Skate Park. No supervision, Suffolk cops are lax and do not want to do anything in Mastic and Shirey.

Guarantee this will be a mess, give it 12 months before it is shut down with a riot attack and after they start finding neededs and crack packages all over..

You have to be joking. Show me those stats. Tell me there are not problems at other parks? Usually the problems at skateparks are from the people who do not use the facilities. I guess we should shut all the football and baseball fields because those sports only lead to steriod use and domestic violence. hopefully the users of the park can control their environment.

The Town Of Crookhaven has so many bright people working in it, why even have elections keep it going town. This will only lead to jobs and lower taxes is there a fee for the park lol and whos pocket is that going into?

So skateboarding automatically means drugs? What about all the public basketball courts, or all of the baseball fields around the Island do they? This message board is just filled with people who do not know shit, and are looking for a scapegoat for a whole communities problems. Because a kid chooses to skateboard dose not raise his/her chances of doing drugs. If anything it makes you less likely to get mixed up in them things. Growing up in this very community and going to Floyd, I feel like skateboarding kept me away from all those kinds of people. I would much rather go out and skate with my friends than get wasted(like all my other non-skateboarding friends would). Now I look at a majority of the people I went to school with and look at where they are in life in comparison to myself. I am a college graduate with a good job and a strong passion for skateboarding still. My non-skateboarding friends are still where they were in highschool....getting wasted or worse, DEAD. You all should take some time, step off your high horses, and realize that the people in this community who use and abuse are not the people that are going to be hanging around this place. This will be a place for people to go as an ALTERNATIVE to these types of people.

your all morons , if you knew anything you would know areas where they build skateparks actually have lower crime rates solely because kids dont hang out on the streets , and secondly "Retired Suffolk" is an idiot why would someone come from wyandanch to start trouble at a skatepark .

Anyone from Shirley ,or Mastic 99% of they time they can be arrested on-site becuase they are up to No-Good and up-to no good.

These two towns are Ghetto trash and the kids are nothing but trouble. Wait and see after the first few weeks, all the other trashy towns arounds kids will gravitate towards Mastic and there will be alot of trouble at this park.

The person who ok'd this plan should be locked up and put away in a straight jacket. Stupid and dumb this will cause crime to increase.

But who really cares, the Mastic morons have no clue - they just want a new name and a mayor that will fix all there problems. LMAO

I would like to see where you got those stats from. Instead of encouraging the stigmata of skateboarding, why don't you try and understand the youth. You are part of the problem not the solution. Would you rather have these youth tearing apart the city property that you ultimately pay for?
Pure ignorance on your part.

In my school more non-skateboarders are the ones drinking and getting high. There shouldn't be stereotypes on skateboarders and that all skaters do drugs. im sure if they were building a football field nobody would have a problem with it. Even though non-skateboarders cause alot more trouble and are the ones who use drugs. The skatepark would be good for the community because it would be a place where we can skate and hang with our friends and just skate where we are supposed to. There are football fields, basketball courts and tennis courts, but as soon as someone hears skatepark they think drugs and gangs. we need a place to just skate...

I have to say that for all of you people with the negativities on this project are a bunch of ignorant uneducated morons. I travel around the country on business and bring a board on every trip and have skated some real scuzzy areas including north Las Vegas and Skatepark are a great thing for the kids. With out them the very same kids that you complain about for ruining all of the public curbs, stair railings and just being in the way and causing trouble. The Skatepark don't get rid of this but sure cut down on it. The problem areas that I have been to, the towns actually put more parks in. Hell las Vegas alone has eight. The key though is to have it fenced and someone to work the gate pay or free it still needs a person to monitor for trouble. I have never had a bad experience at a park and have never seen gang hangers as you call them. Kids are relatively good, they just need an outlet for their aggression and something to do. So get a clue. Go visit chelsea piers in Manhattan which is free. Scuzzy all around it but never a problem there.

You, are completely wrong. I am 20 years old and have been an avid skateboarder for 11 years now. I have also recently skateboarded at this park. Skateparks deter the crime and drug use that people commit due to the fact that they don't have anywhere else to go or anything to do. Who walks to a skatepark anyway? People get their parents to drive them or people just drive themselves. AND, the skatepark is in the middle of the high school and middle school, thus adding more extracurricular availabilities. Your point is invalid and weak. At this point, building a skatepark is equivalent to the construction of a hockey rink or a gym. It is athletic, challenging, and above all, fun. If anything this skatepark is helping to deter the crime ridden nature of mastic. you are wrong, LMAO.

half the people are sterotypical, racist assholes. "oh the brothers are gonna come and before long have coke everwhere" i mean really does anyone re-read there comments and look at how much of an asshole they sound like? skateboarding and bmx doesnt bring crime or drugs. where do you get these stats from? infact biking has kept me an all my friends away from drinking and drugs. and skateparks should acually bring vandilism. we "ruin" stairs, ledges, rails becuase there is no other rails around. with a skatepark we wont need to get in ur busy lifes. ultimitly skateparks are good for the kids and commuity in general.

I was told by someone connected to the Skate Park it is not going to happen. It has been months and all I see is broken beer bottles, hypodermic needle , syringes, empty crack viles.

This Skate Park will never be built, what a mistake who would build a skate park in a trailer park like Mastic?
