Peekskill Housing Authority residents are showing up because there's a rumor that the City is closing the Kiley Center and that's not true,the City cannot close the Kiley Center the Housing Authority owns it.....The City has space there under the guise that there are programs being implemented by the City...There is none the workers simply play baby sitter, there are no programs of substance being sponsored by the City unless cursing and running the kids out at the staff's discretion..It's time for the Housing Authority to revisit the Boys and Girls Club..or a similar program that will help build much needed Resilience....
