Fishing for tires

April 19th, 2012

According to one man on the scene, the DEP has determined there's some guy in Yonkers dumping tires in the Hudson, and the gentleman above, using a rope and grappling hook, has hauled in more than a hundred of them as they've floated by the little beach and pier at the end of Dyckman Street in Inwood Hill Park. The tire removal is part of a larger initiative by a group of friends to fix up and maintain this section of the park; they've also picked up all the litter in the area, planted tomatoes and cucumbers, and built a woodchip path running along the water.

    What do they do with all the tires hauled?

    !!!!! I APPLAUD YOU !!!!! Great people such as this and his friends. We need to do as they do in our communities too. Stop waiting for “someone else” to fix it, they are doing something about it because they want a clean place. Bravo!!
