ive lived in verplanck the entire 20 years in my life, though the sea plane base is historic it is also prime real estate and with the contract already signed i highly doubt the TOC is gonna give the opportunity up.

OMG, historic sea plane base ...LMAO?!?! You gotta be kidding, it's a trailer park and a freaking eye sore at that. I feel for the people who have to move but that land has been abused, polluted for over half a century. Concerned resident acts like Orville and Wilbur SXIT there!!

If you knew anything Mia you'd know the Hudson is far less polluted now. 60yrs ago companies could dump anything into the river, and usually did. The town of Verplanck hasn't changed much, basically the same mix of middle, low middle class families. I don't know where you're coming from, I was born in Yonkers, grew up in Montrose. Trust me the difference is NIGHT and DAY!

Far less thanks to Pete...I belong to the clearwater sloop club since 1980. It still has 100 yrs to go before its safe. I wouldnt swim in it today or let my children eat the fish or crabs...or anyone for that matter. Industries still spill into that river ..barges still dump hazardous wastes

I happen to live there so you morons are rude & a disgrace to human race. I make 90 grand a year & pay $150 a month in rent living right on the water. So as far as referring to me as Trailer Trash,..Really? Struggle with your mortages but the people of the Trailer Park have more dignity & a far less stressful life making them wonderful neighbors. My parents have a million dollar home in Cortland Manor so my blood still runs red regardless of my property. What a shame reading these posts. A damn shame! I wish you all lose your fortunes just so you can have compassion to those who suffer. I hope your children struggle or your hubands & wives that provide for you struggle. Rude heartless bastards.

I never really drove around until the other day and I couldn't believe my eyes!! I have never seen such a depressed area.
Every block , every house was disgraceful.
Then I came to the waterfront. How sad that it has been abused by the trailer residents for so long!!
No paint to upgrade their trailer homes, clothes hanging all over, filrh, unkept property and an eye sore.
You could see the history beneath the depression, but paint and soap and water doesn't cost much.
This is the only area on the hudson river, in westchester , that really needs to go and get a face lift.

Farewell all of you who paid nothing all these years to live like time stood still while everyone struggled to make ends meet to keep neat and clean and value their resisence. You had all this time to figure it out. Nothing lasts forever. Welcome to the real world!!

Before you pull those levers next week, here's a few sad facts about our sad little boro to bear in mind:

Corrupt and his band of dried up old irrelevant old geezers has strong-armed our sad little boro for years and continue to do so.

The Runaway Chief who himself had no fear of his boss and his fellow dirty Dems and any repercussions when he did the many things he did and shouldn't have, refused to do anything about it.

The Republicans had multiple chances as well to do something about it and have so far not had the guts to stand up to it for example, John the so-called Financial expert is the most guilty and should have resigned back in September of last year when he was "visibly shaken" and changed his vote at the last minute when he knew he was right the first few go arounds but didn't have the guts to stick to his guns.

There are quite a few residents who have been on to this for a long time but don't have the courage to stand up to the Regime but sadly most of the dumbasses in Penndel don't educate themselves or come to meetings and are blissfully unaware resulting in the same s*** different election year.

Candidate may have changed parties just to accommodate his own agenda as well as run again after quitting twice in the past and f****** up many things especially our decrepit sewer system but is still a corrupt Democrat at heart as well as being one of the biggest phonies and Liars this town has ever seen or ever will see throughout his entire life.

Come November, and any Democrats and false and fake Republicans running need to go and so does

is way overdue for a fresh start. I mean ? Seriously??

The only people that deserve our vote are

Every single f****** word I have written here is true. You know it, I know it, and most of the candidates know it.

But the most sad fact of all is none of them will man up to it.

Instead, they will just have this post erased YET AGAIN in a cover-up like they always do.

if people live there and it's an eye sore, its because the land owner or landlord does not maintain the site.YOU do NOT have empathy for the poverty stricken elderly that have to move. Also , you say "Its a trailer park" like they deserve any less respect than anybody else's type of domicile. If you did you would see that. The bigger issue lies in Rockland county allows these landlords to get away with it. MONEY$$$$$$$$ The greed that will put money into this now prime real estate. these landlords need reasons to sell so they let it rot while people still live there, People like you are cold hearted and part of the reason for the horrible state of disconnect for our neighbors and people in general. I hope one day when you are old you are in a trailer park eating cat food!!!!YOU ARE NOT CONCERNED except about yourself and Your property value. Cant take it with you!!!!
