After several months since Hurricane Sandy, Long Beach, NY looks great. I have not seen most of the damage, but the recovery is well underway, the beach is clean, the town is ready, and the water is so clear. Several surfers were out, and a recommended restaurant was closed due to Private Party, everyone was out and about, and construction for the new boardwalk will start soon. The new boardwalk will be made of a hardwood tropical wood and the phased approach will be implemented. Sections of the boardwalk will open one at a time. Plans and dates are difficult to estimate-but everyone remains hopeful and excited about the Summer ahead.
