Closing Bell: Restoring the Beaches


WNYC visited the Rockaways in advance of their seasonal opening on Saturday. The area has improved from the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy, but there’s still work to be done. The Army Corps of Engineers plans to start beach nourishment in late June. Additionally, the A train won’t be in service until the end of May, according to the MTA.

If you head out to the Rockaways or anywhere else in the borough this weekend, please feel free to send photos to We’re happy to use cool pictures and will give credit and links back. Thanks for a great first week!
