Friends of Rockaway Beach
A rally was held Sunday urging the New York City Parks Department to pick up the pace in replacing the Rockaway Beach boardwalk that was destroyed by Superstorm Sandy.
Residents of Rockaway Beach descended on City Hall in Lower Manhattan Saturday, demanding that their beaches be rebuilt right now.
The rally was held on Beach 86th Street in the Rockaways, where the devastation is still apparent more than a month after Sandy hit.
Advocate John Cori said he thinks the jetties helped spare the community of Arverne By The Sea and its boardwalk.
