Bloomberg's Knowledge Of Cedar Grove Beach Club Issue " No Idea"

Cedar Grove resident Eileen Lee and Mayor Michael Bloomberg hold a sign reading "Parks Must Reconsider, Save Cedar Grove." The Mayor posed for the photo as he was returning to City Hall as residents and supporters of the Cedar Grove Beach Club held a rally on the steps of City Hall. "I'll take a look at it; I have no idea," said the mayor. (Staten Island Advance/Michael McWeeney)

In a last-ditch effort to get Mayor Michael Bloomberg to squash a plan by the city Parks Department to take over Cedar Grove Beach, about 50 residents of the New Dorp beachfront bungalows trekked yesterday to City Hall to beg Hizzoner not to raze their summer homes.

"I'll take a look at it; I have no idea," said the mayor, who came strolling up the steps of City Hall just moments after the rally ended -- stopping briefly to hear residents' concerns.
