Samoy celebrate the removal of one boat from Beach 28 Street with a victory sign. The Beachside Bungalow Preservation Association (BBPA) has been working to have two abandoned boats removed from the neighborhood spanning Beach 24 Street to Beach 28 Street. After several attempts, one of the boats was finally removed.

The association is still working on having the Scalawag removed from Beach 24 Street. The owners of the property where the boat is currently located are deceased, leaving the boat and the property abandoned.

The Far Rockaway neighborhood is also celebrating the completed construction of a new ramp on Beach 24 Street, lovingly dubbed "the Carmela," after Carmela George, longtime Far Rockaway resident and activist.
