A great idea. It should had been done many years ago to save money. Now we have jobs for people cleaning up bird manure.

You still need to have something for the people to come to. Just having a clean beach will not justify the cost and maintenance of water taxies. People still need to feel safe, especially when they see the surrounding neighborhood because you're obviously going to get the 'locals' with their loud rap-crap, drugs, drunks and riff-raff. Is it really worth it? Will the end justify the means? The politicians know it's a lost cause.
I don't believe anything will ever come to Pleasure Beach or change it because everyone knows in the back of their minds what will happen. Since you can't eliminate the local social environment the memories of Pleasure Beach will always be just that, memories.

I agree, I think this water taxi idea is such an obvious boondoggle. Who's going to go there when its so much more trouble than Seaside Park? With a working bridge, you can come and go as you like, and you can be in the comfort and shelter of your car. With the water taxis, you can't.
This taxi plan is as stupid as a steaming pile of Obama.

Thats the only way to make that space work. Although I'd vote for saving the money for now.... it's a wonderful place but life can go on for now without it.

I would let Tippy speak for the fish. You don't really know if they said anything to Tippy, do you?

So do you think they're passing secret messages then? I wouldn't be surprised.

Why didn't our government use that $60 million (or even just a portion of it) that we just sent to Syria for medical aid and spend it on rebuilding Pleasure Beach? Hey!! There's a thought! Why? Because our government does not get anything back if we spend it on ourselves. Remember, there is always an end-game to what governments do and it isn't for the people.

Good morning Sam. Hey, Spring is starting to come around! About time. I'm getting a little tired of these gloomy, cold and dark days.
