    The NYS Department of Recreation sign stands at the now privatized upper public parking lot shows that Mayor Nyquill and Town Supervisor Sue Auerbach Zimmett have scratched and rubbed off their names where they once were written. As to the memorial plaque made out of metal and affixed by bolts into a boulder by the once public picnic area, that was removed also. The boulder is still there, along with the sign. But the sign from the Department of The Interior of the United States of America is gone too, taken down when the town and village, which jointly own the park, privatized everything for themselves. God Bless the United States income tax payer for the grants from the Federal government that paid for that million dollar lawsuit, and don’t know it.
