ROCKAWAY BEACH vs. STATEN ISLAND EROSION?!?!

Rockaway Ol`times

This aerial oblique photo shows a old wooden jetty holding the beach from being washed away at Cedar Grove Beach, located in Staten Island. This beach is between Oakwood Beach to the south (top of photo), and New Dorp Beach to the north (bottom of photo). To the left is the Atlantic Ocean. One cannot help but ponder…what improvements the Army Corps of Engineers made there in Staten Island (circa 1900’something). The photo insert is the cover of June 1st 2017 Rockaway Times issue.
