Long Beach named 10th safest city in New York
(Page 2 of 2)
Anthony Rifilato/Herald
A bicyclist on a section of the new boardwalk that reopened in July. Long Beach was named among the 10 safest cities in New York state last month by Safewise, which noted the city’s iconic boardwalk and other recreational activities.

“Unfortunately, Hurricane Sandy destroyed several Long Beach businesses, homes and its boardwalk, but the power of its citizens helped the community of 33,000 rebuild itself and emerge stronger than ever. The Long Beach Recreation Center reopened and once again offers every family member something special. From toddler yoga to infant music exploration classes to ice skating instruction and women’s kickball, Long Beach is committed to helping you raise a healthy family. Working parents will appreciate the before and after-school programs, summer camp programs, and top-notch childcare center. Moreover, Long Beach is our 10th safest city in New York. That could be in part due to a pro-active Police Department and a robust Auxiliary Police Department.”

Mr Rifilato,

I can not believe how the Herald has become a place for "puff" pieces for the City of Long Beach. I take the safest city article for example. Safewise uses 2011 statistics for their report. If I had any journilistic sense and I was reporting this informnation I would have investigated those numbers and compared them to 2012 and 2013 and turned the story into a real story about what may or may not be going on in Long Beach.Our police commisioner is paid more than his counterpart in New York City

and 28 police officers earn more than our City Manager.

What gives sir. Does Mr. Tepper (junior) feed you this fluff.

Happy New Year to you. I hope as I receive these free copies of the Herald your articles may inspire me to once again be a regular patron and put down the $1 for a fair and true look at what is going on in our city
