Dear editor,

The governor and mayor of New York make no sense in closing Rikers Island and building four smaller jails throughout the boroughs. Rikers prison is situated in the safest place.

Supposedly it will cost millions of dollars to close and move these prisoners to the four boroughs; renovating the jails would be a wiser move.

We have a large number of homeless people on the streets of New York who are mentally ill and deserve to be hospitalized. The extra land on the island should be used for a hospital.

Hopefully, common sense will win out and the taxpayer will be happy knowing their tax dollars will be spent wisely.
