“We need to improve the water quality and we need to improve and restore the areas around the sound,” says Seligson.
Her group has teamed up with Save the Sound.
“We want people to be able to swim at all the beaches. We want people to feel comfortable and appreciate what this fabulous resource is in their own backyards,” says Seligson.
“One out of ten Americans live within an hour’s drive. It is a place of great cultural pride as the place where the regular man can get out on the water, enjoy it,” says Johnson.MORE NEWS: Man Suffers Broken Nose In Alleged Anti-Asian Attack At Midtown Subway Station
