Goldfeder Removed Graffiti From Addabbo Bridge
In response to his April 24 letter to Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s office, Assemblymember Phil Goldfeder (D-Rockaway) announced that the New York City Graffiti Removal Unit removed the graffiti on the Joseph P. Addabbo Memorial Bridge.
“While enjoying some time touring Jamaica Bay, I noticed the graffiti on the side of the bridge and immediately sent a letter to the mayor’s office,” Goldfeder said. “The bridge is a prominent landmark in our community, with countless people passing over and under it each day. The graffiti was an eyesore for our neighborhood and it needed to be removed.”
Jamaica Bay is nationally recognized and known for its beauty and economic activity. It is a 400-acre parcel of wetlands and shoreline that is widely regarded as one of the most expansive bird sanctuaries in the northeast and home to more than 60 species of butterflies and a wide variety of reptiles and fish, Goldfeder added.
“I want to commend the Mayor’s Community Affairs Unit and Commissioner Nazli Parvizi for their quick response,” Goldfeder said. “This is just another example of community leaders, elected officials and government agencies working together to achieve immediate and real results that better our community.”
