Buses in Rockaway too crowded

My name is Jerome D. Reyes and I have lived in the Rockaways for 10 years. I have three sons and a caring woman at home. It was never my intention to move to Rockaway, but after I saw the beach I fell in love with It. My son just turned 8 and the ocean and the beach is all he wants. Comment.
