Why do we negate the neighborhood we are living in? Sure, Briarwood has a lot of things that can create problems lately, but there are also great things.
Hoover Park and Playground is a wonderful place to be all year around, especially in the summertime. We have shopping, dining and banking needs right down on Queens Boulevard. We have the Doe Fund that collects trash and sweeps the sidewalks. We have community groups that work to make Briarwood a better place to live.
The Briarwood Action Network/BAN is one of the amazing organizations within our community. They, in the past, have donated numerous times to the homeless shelter. They have organized park days which have involved planting, painting and clean-up. They have initiated field trips to King Mansion and Maple Grove Cemetery.
There are good things going on here in Briarwood. Let us open our eyes and see the positive.
