Never mind, you just keep on fighting for nature, Dick. There's far too much housing for humans and not enough for wildlife. To those that don't like nature, move to NYC and enjoy all that concrete.

This is the area that takes credit for starting the environmental revolution when it banned DDT.

Har! Har! Har!

It's only about bucks with politicians. See how much migrating birds donate (compared to developers).

So much stink over this development but everyone looked the other way with respect to Ridge Greens where 79 homes are being built on some of the most pristine land in the pine barrens.

I'm sorry, "Bewildered" but I had to laugh. A completely anonymous comment misidentified you as being from Wyandanch and you felt compelled to tell us you were really from Ridge.

Says a lot for Wyandanch. And you're not so bewildered as to not realize it.
