The parks department is spending tons of money on the north end(read Harlem) of Central Park. Why? It's called Park Inequality. Yeah... Right. So Hey... Parks Dept. What about TSP. The place is turning into a dump. The worst bathroom... the lack of plantings... the unfinished reconstruction... the pock-marked roads... the mass amount of flies? Talk about inequality!!!!
