My family and I have owned a house on the East End for over 25 years. Because we’re primarily housebound now because of this terrible virus, it gave me time to think about what things were like — not just 25 years ago but even 15 years ago or less.
In those days, it was quiet here. Like now, you could hear the birds, you could hear the wind, and summer had a certain fresh smell to it.
I realize there are many more residents living here now, and many more will come in the summer, and that’s fine. More people should be able to live in this tranquil place. But that doesn’t mean that there has to be more noise and air pollution from the skies above.
We don’t need helicopters, seaplanes and jets buzzing back and forth so that visitors can save an hour of their commute back and forth from the city.
