A record number of 125 beachwalkers hiked the traditional 2 miles at Fort Tilden on January 1st to celebrate the New Year. At exactly noon, they attempted to signal across the harbor to another large group at Sandy Hook. Despite the use of pyrotechnics, mirrors and group shouting, they once again failed to communicate. “I thought this was going to be the year” said Don Riepe, “but I guess we’ll have to think of some other methods for 2006. This was our 22nd year of failed attempts”. No one seemed to care, however, and all enjoyed the balmy 60-degree weather and free champagne. 066p1_xlg.jpg
