Beach Madness

Dear Editor:

Why are our beaches still closed between Beach 107th Street and Beach 89th Street ?

The signs read due to erosion. Are you telling me there was no erosion from Beach 107th Street to 149th Street, where the beaches are open and lifeguards on duty??

If anyone asks, Rockaway is still far from being normal. The parks security folks manning the beaches between Beach 107th and Beach 89th street need to get their act together. They appear to take their jobs to extreme one day and then lax the next. I’ve seen them threaten folks with a $100 fine just for standing ankle high in water. They recently asked a friend of mine to dismount his bike on the beach or he would be fined. The next day a number of folks were bike riding on the beach with no problem. I was told I could not sit by the water line because I crossed the red flag barriers.

What is going on in the Rockaways. Haven’t we been through enough?
