NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The summer is ending a little early for some beachgoers in the Rockaways.
About a mile of the beach will be closed Labor Day weekend for dredging by the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers, WCBS 880’s Marla Diamond reported.
The closures will take place on stretches from Beach 110th Street to Beach 130th Street and Beach 88th Street to Beach 93rd Street.
Many residents are frustrated, claiming there was little notice of the work being done over the holiday weekend.
On 120th Street, resident Beth Hanning had an annual beach party planned, along with food and supplies ordered.
