Open Discussion Brings Out Issues Regarding Possible Carousel
Members of the East Norwich Civic Association (ENCA) voted at their Oct. 26 meeting on the proposal for a carousel to be placed in Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Park. First they listened to the Main Street Association proposal to build a carousel and then to the Citizens for Open Space at Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Park who prefer to maintain the open space in the park. What followed was an open discussion where questions and answers fleshed out the proposal, after which the vote was taken. About 50 people attended the meeting although many could not vote. A total of 24 votes were cast: 19 opposed and five in favor of the carousel.
Carousel Proposal Challenged
Former Congressman Lester Wolf, now a Muttontown resident spoke in a telephone interview about the possibility of a carousel located at Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Park. He was not in favor of the location saying, "The idea of a carousel in what was to be considered a sanctuary and tribute to Theodore Roosevelt is inconsistent with the original concept. It might be good for business but it does not coincide with the original intent, which was to create a wildlife sanctuary. If they want to do something why not re-create what existed in TR's time and try to preserve the legacy of what TR gave us. A carousel is good for Coney Island, this is not Coney Island."
