No 2013 Summer at Fort Tilden Queens Due to Hurricane Sandy Devastation...

Well, it looks like there will be no Summer at Fort Tilden Queens NY. National Park Service officials announced in February that it was unlikely that the beach would be ready for Summer of 2013 and hinted that the beach will remain closed and possibly reopen in 2014. I was at Fort Tilden just last week and there was no indication that the beach would be ready for the Summer of 2013. Lack of resources whether manpower or funding or maybe Fort Tilden is not a high priority item, I don't know, but beach goers at Fort Tilden will just have to grin and bear it. If you are wondering how bad the beach was hit by Hurricane Sandy? Take a look at these photos (with the exception of the 1st one) I took on January 26th, which shows some of the devastation that occurred.

This bunker photographed in the Summer of 2013 was obliterated by Hurricane Sandy
Road covered with debris and sand.
The storm was so powerful it blew the top of the bunker onto the beach.
More bunker devastation
