What is the Leisure Lounge? Sounds like it needs to go...along with the Capri Motel and all the other lowlife hangouts. We don't need any of them or the people who frequent them.

Residents of West Hempstead have to go to Civic meetings and be aware of the problems in our town. We have to be aware of our surroundings and "if we see something, say something".....
