Gross Negligence

The following letter was sent to the Park's Department today:

"The attached pictures show the unsafe Field quality of the 128th field and 3rd avenue field at home plate and the pitcher's mound."

A wood blank covered by old turf is a terrible and unsafe method to repair a field. The Mound is also damaged, worn, and uneven.

On Saturday a poor kid was hurt sliding into home plate.

This is very sad and unfortunate.

This needs to be repaired immediately as New Yorker's this represent gross negligence to safe and healthy recreation.

Please forward to the appropriate person or provide me with their contact information.

if you have any further question please let me know."
This is gross negligence and needs to be addressed. 

Utterly irresponsible and ridiculous.


  1. Harlem River has been under these conditions since March. If you choose to play, expect the worse. NYC Parks Dept has been notified. Lastly, if you want these "artificial turf" fields to last, stop using your cleats!!

  2. The funds/our taxes went to Yankee Stadium & Citi Field instead.

  3. hurt my ankle there 2011. that has been like that for years. sorry to hear they have not fixed it.
