life refuge of few New Yorkers are It is en closed in the marshy crescent of Jamaica bounded by Kennedy Airport on one side and one of the less attractive stretches of Brooklyn on the A seven mile sandspit stands between the front of the Bay and the high breakers of the Atlantic On all oth er Jamaica Bay is sur rounded by Part of the shoreline is taken up by one of the citys garbage dumps a

everywhere else around the Bay is further evi dence of mans contempt for nature broken rusty beer shredded newspa pers and discarded motor Behind these acres of litter are the stark outlines of fuel tanks and gas Jamaica Bay is also the citys dumping ground for a quarter of a million gallons of sewage every day until it was re cently outlawed as a fire haz of the unwanted jet fuel and oil which Kennedy Airport spewed These past few years Jamaica Bay has suffer ed just about every insult the city can The ultimate Insult was con tained in a recent project of he Port of New York Authority which would have extended the runways of Kennedy into Ja maica Frustrated in its at tempts to obtain enough land to build a fourth New York air the Port Authority hoped to ease the congestion in the skies by spreading out the con crete complex of Kennedy into the To the majority of New York who know nothing about Jamaica the proposal seemed fair Some un doubtedly thought it less de structive than the recent expan sion of La Guardia where a lagoon once used as a pleasurable boating lake was filled in to create extra car park as a vociferous group of conservationists point ed the expansion of Ken

in Amer The refuge takes up of the Bays making it well over half the size of the island of From the shoreline it is hard to judge the extent of the Bay because the marshes are so flat and and the sky so even in texture that the light plays tricks with In one direction the marshes look as endlessly bleak as a scene from Dickens in another the distance across them seems but a short step into Manhat

support this great nat ural Under pressure from conservationists the Port Authority asked the opinion of the National Academy of Sci ences before proceeding with the plan to extend Kennedy Air which
