Greenpoint parkgoers call for cleanup of McGolrick playground

GREENPOINT - Parkgoers in Greenpoint are calling for immediate help from the Parks Department in cleaning up McGolrick playground.

Resident Gloria McCormick says broken branches, debris, twigs, leaves and dirt from Hurricane Irene still blanket the black-top. She says the park has generally been neglected for a few months and that it's a hazard for the children who play there.

The Parks Department says it sent out two employees to start sweeping up debris. McCormick, however, says the mess is too big for just two people to clean.

Meantime, neighbors say they're gathering on their own for a special meeting on Friday night.
