The beaches of Edgemere and East Arverne bore the new erosion problem caused by the coming up of the long beach bar off the Far Rockaway beach. The beaches of Western Arverne fared a little better, but the future looked bleak as erosion was creeping slowly westward. City beach fill, a new boardwalk and more jetties came in the latter part of the late 1920’s to save the beach.
