Crews started installing the long-sought beach walls at Beach 149th Street. The walls will run from Beach 149th to Beach 126th Street. The pre-fab concrete slabs, are slotted into anchoring ‘H’ shaped pylons some 25 feet deep and extend approximately four feet above the street grade level at the end of each block.
The part of the wall that will be exposed (over the sand) will be 4 feet. Photos by Peter Brady
