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.
WCBS 880 Long Island Bureau Chief Mike Xirinachs reports
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.
