2 LI parks shut down due to money
Two Long Island parks shut down yesterday because of the state?s financial crisis.
Nissequogue River State Park and Brookhaven Park are just two of 55 state-run parks and historic sites that were shut down.
Officials say the reason is that state lawmakers have still not agreed on a budget and there is not enough money to operate the parks.
On Saturday, Citibank donated $100,000 to help keep Zach's Bay and Connetquot State Park open. They were also slated to close.
