Finally, Fort Tilden Beach Is Open to the Public


    Since closing due to Hurricane Sandy (that was 2012, readers!), the beach at Fort Tilden is finally open again. Bedford and Bowery reported yesterday that the National Parks Service quietly reopened the area despite fears that it would remain off-limits this year.

    The Parks Department started cleaning up the beach in March — here’s what the area looked like at the beginning of this year. Parks had to remove large pieces of debris, including hunks of roadway, from the beach. The area remained shut for season last year because of the incredible amount of hurricane damage and the sprawling size of the park. We can’t wait to check out the newly-cleaned spot this summer.
