Beach Walls Appear



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.
