RYE, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — More than six months after Superstorm Sandy, the famed boardwalk at Rye Playland opened Friday ahead of schedule and under budget, Westchester County officials said.
Superstorm Sandy ripped parts of Rye Playland from shore, sending the famed boardwalk floating eerily in the Long Island Sound, with benches and lampposts still attached.
“Hurricane Sandy came here and wrecked it,” Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino said. “Wrecked the boardwalk, she wrecked the Ice Casino. She wreaked havoc here, but we’re rebuilding.”
