Is it summer yet? This news makes us pine for warmer months: DNAinfo reports that 16 months after Hurricane Sandy, Fort Tilden Beach will finally open this summer. The Parks Department just started work on Thursday to clean up storm damage; the goal is to open in time for the 2014 beach season. Parks will remove large pieces of debris, including hunks of roadway, from the beach. The cleanup took longer than average — staying shut for the beach season last year — because of the large amount of hurricane damage and the sprawling size of the park.
