Parks Begins Renovating Far Rockaway Boardwalk
The work started late this past sum mer and new boards have already been laid down on the street side of the boardwalk.
"[The renovations are] expected to be completed in the spring," Abigail Lootens, of the Parks Department told The Wave in an e-mail this week.
In its June 8 issue, The Wave ran photos of jagged boards, some with dangerously protruding nails, that were found from Beach 21 to Beach 24 Streets. Queens Commissioner of Parks, Dorothy Lewandowski, told this newspaper in May "There was contract money available to fix the boards in the 20's [in the fall]."
The Wave asked Looten if there were any plans to replace the boards west of Beach 23 Street.
