The Board of the Howard Beach Civic Association invited Dr. Richard Pinskor of Jamaica Hospital and Dr. Frans Verhagen of Sane Aviation for Everyone (SAFE), Inc. to address its meeting on January 31. The former mostly focused on the health effects of JFK Airport, while the latter urged the civic members to get involved in opposition to the proposed new Jamaica Bay runway.
