I am totally heartbroken by this. My children as well as 3 others devoted most of their time last summer with my supervision cleaning this building up as well as the whole playground so they had a safe clean place to go. I would go there everyday and offer these children structured play and there was not a day that I did not have at least 8 children there. I put a lot of my time energy and money into giving these kids a place that I knew was free from crime bullying and drugs. To have some sorry SOB come in there and vindictivly destroy the only place these kids in Prospect Park have to go hang out totally blows my mind! I want to know what the person gained by doing this. I kknow I will not allow my children at the park until this structure is now taken down or repaired because I am not sure of how safe it is. To the person who did this (I hope you can read this), you are a no good rotten punk who single handedly took away the one thing all of the children up here enjoyed. For that I hope you feel good about yourself because you would be the only one who does. I am not giving up on giving these children a safe place to go to. I will do all I can to help clean up this mess and let the children continue with their safe play area!

I hope they catch the perp. or perps. and throw the book at them. This is just unacceptable. How can people who dothings like this even live with themselves? Probably because they have no conscience.
