BRADLEY BEACH, N.J. (CBSNewYork) – After superstorm Sandy, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is taking a stand in the sand.
“We now know that having aggressive dune systems works,” he said. “What I care about most is that an aggressive protective dune system is built and maintained as a result of this storm.”
The governor saw that firsthand in Bradley Beach, where the dunes protected the promenade and oceanfront homes.
To rebuild them, wooden fences are erected and thousands of old Christmas trees trucked in from Jersey City and Essex County are piled up.
