Post-Sandy Rockaway

New, 1 comment

Hurricane Sandy destroyed the iconic Rockaway boardwalk, and many have wondered what the beaches would be like come summer. Last night, Queens Park commissioner outlined a plan, saying that the number of lifeguards would be the same, but the boardwalk would only return in portions. Dangerous pieces of the boardwalk are still being removed, and there will be beach access through "breezeways" every couple of blocks. Boardwalk "islands" will be built around concession stands, offices, and showers. [NYDN; photo]
