The New York Islanders recent move to Brooklyn has left many Long Island residents longing for their return. Those who favor building a new arena believe the vacant 28-acre, state-owned, south parking lot, next to Belmont Park is well-situated near the LIRR and close to major highways. Those against this location feel the Coliseum is already available and the proposed location is better suited as a mixed use development with rental housing. Would you support building a new arena to house the New York Islanders on the 28-acre south parking lot next to Belmont Park?

At the corners of Elm Drive and Midwood Cross (neighborhood of Country Estates in East Hills) and Glen Cove rd. are bus stops on a hill that are extremely dangerous. The bus stops should be graded and made flat so in inclement weather individuals aren't at risk of slipping off the hill into on coming traffic.
