Letter: Some suggestions for Kew Gardens

“… the project is aimed at drawing more traffic to Queen Street from the beach …”

Money better spent? Perhaps along the boardwalk there could be electronic maps of Queen Street indicating what is just north? Restaurants, retail outlets, daily specials, weekend deals – easily updated.

Along the south side of Kew Gardens is the snack shop, bathrooms and ice rink. These buildings, which definitely block the view to Queen Street, won’t be torn down to ‘pave’ a view to Queen Street. Realistically, even if these structures were non-existent, Queen Street isn’t easy to see from the boardwalk.

Near where I work on Queen Street there are storefronts that have been vacant for years. Maybe rents are too high? Let’s fill them up and celebrate our Beach!
