I learned from a friend that Great Kills Park, where I worked for about four years, is radioactive. Woo-ha!
The park used to be a landfill, and some radioactive equipment was buried there. The locals are nervous. Officials, including my employer the National Park Service, say it’s not dangerous, then again officials say a lot of things. The radioactive area is covered with grasses that go up in flames periodically. Next time that happens people are going to flip out.
And I mean flip out. We’re talking about Staten Island here.
