The Village of Sea Cliff has a reputation for being a family-friendly community. Mayor Bruce Kennedy and the board of trustees discussed at a public meeting on July 11 an issue that many feel affects the safety of the children in the village. The section of Littleworth Lane bordering the Sea Cliff School playground has been deemed “a tragedy waiting to happen” in the words of several citizens. Although the section between Carpenter Avenue and Hansen Place is closed until 5 p.m. during the school year, the procedure does not extend to the summer months and several incidents of near accidents have already occurred. Trustee Brian Mannix pointed out that the children are used to the fact that the street is normally closed and are liable to run out into oncoming traffic. “Consistency for safety’s sake is, without a doubt, the best move here,” he remarked regarding the permanent closing of the section of Littleworth.
