I would like to see a space dedicated to our kids. A place where they can go and play, relax and socialize with friends with some supervision.
When New Roc was built, it was exhilirating to have the rink as a meeting place then they turned it into a go-cart track and now i think it is used by Monroe College.
We need to look at Eastchester & Mamaroneck who have extensive programs for middle schoolers and high schoolers. A Rink, a party space, summer & school break activities for K-13.
Parents would bring their kids there, they would stay in the downtown and shop or grab coffee or lunch with a friend or take kids out later for dinner, It would create a social loop.
