I often hear of Glen Cove's bedroom community. They are the better educated, better informed, more affluent members of the community, who hop in their cars or on the train and go off to work. Their main concern is to make a living and live well. They don't know what's actually going on in Glen Cove. They don't have time to really take a good, long, hard look at the town in which they live.
Maybe it's time they did take a look. Maybe it's time they became concerned about what's happening to their city because while they're out working hard and making a living, the prices of their homes are declining. Nobody likes to work and have their investments go down the tube.
Maybe the members of the bedroom community should take a ride through Glen Cove with their eyes wide open. It's not enough to jump in a car and drive down Brewster and on the arterial highway to the railroad station or directly to work. Take a ride through the heart of different neighborhoods of Glen Cove and you may be in for a surprise. Do it on different days, and different hours to get a true flavor of the beat of the city.
