We can make it happen
A commited group of people, working together for the same goals, can make things happen. Social media gives us the opportunity to easily connect with each other faster than ever before.
Almost every day in some some small or large way we see or hear of positive changes occuring in communities where people have united to fight for quality of life issues in their communities. Aircraft intrusion over our homes is one of those struggles and it is occurring in communites in just about every state in the nation.
Long Island has over 8 million residents and represents the largest voting block in NY State. That's us! We have the numbers, and that's what politicians pay attention to, only numbers. We've waited long enough, the problem worsens every year; in August 2016, the FAA extended for four more years (without any public comment period) the helicopter route known as the North Shore Route (NSR). Noise and pollution from helicopters and other aircraft traveling that route impact residents all the way from NYC to Orient on the north shore, and from NYC to East Hampton's noisy airport on the south shore. Among the most badly impacted areas are hamlets in Southampton Town--East Hampton's closest neighbors.
