Amityville Mobile Home Residents Being Forced Out
AMITYVILLE, NY (WCBS 880) - Some of the more than 500 residents of a low-income mobile home park in Amityville, Long Island say they don’t know where they’ll go if forced to move to make way for a new apartment and retail complex.
Ken Burgh has lived there for ten years and says, “There are around 300 trailers in this trailer park. I mean how many homeless people are there going to be? It’s low income. That’s the way we live here. The rent is $635 a month.”
The owners of Frontier Park are offering residents up to $2,000 moving expenses, but many say that means nothing if you have no place to move to.
