When Sea-Don't Recede, He Sea-Doo In The Street

Neighbors watch as Beach 84 Street resident Craig Marinucci rides his Sea-Doo Bombardier personal watercraft right down the middle of the street Monday afternoon. Marinucci said the monthly moon-tide fills the street with water from Jamaica Bay and that a "belly" effect in the streets topography causes three days of flood conditions between Beach Channel Drive and the north end of the street. "You can't flush a toilet now because it goes nowhere," Marinucci said. "And I pay taxes for this." Photo by Brian Magoolaghan
