Safety Issue at Grandpa Al Lewis Playground ?

Apparently something may have happened to the playground apparatus at Grandpa Al Lewis Playground here on Roosevelt Island to cause the unit to be partially taped off.

I have written Michael Smith, RIOC's Parks and Recreation Manager for details and will post them once I hear back from his office.

In the meantime I'd advise that if your kids frequent this park that they do so with adult supervision as I know my own kids would not let a little tape stop them from climbing on through this segment of the apparatus.

  1. The fact that there is even a Grandpa Al Lewis playground is dangerous to kids as far as I can tell. Al Lewis was a disgusting, lecherous old man who would harass any young, or not so young, girl who had the misfortune of walking by him while he was doing his rounds of the Island. The man was one of the things I went out of my way to AVOID as a child and teenager growing up on RI. He certainly does not deserve to have a playground named after him.
