Berms for Beaches

Tully Construction will soon be erecting the planned berms along Staten Island’s shoreline.  The first phase of the project will consist of two berms: one at South Beach, and the other from New Dorp Beach to Oakwood Beach.  The second phase, whose start date is uncertain, will consist of two additional berms: one at Crescent Beach Park, and the other at Conference House Park.  Overlapped openings will be installed so that beachgoers will have access to the coast.

New Small Business Development Center in New Dorp

The Small Business Development Center has opened up a second location as a convenience to those trying to recover their businesses after Hurricane Sandy.  Previously, the only location for the center was at the College of Staten Island, near Staten Island’s center and far from where much of Staten Island received damage.  Their second office is now located at 1361 North Railroad Avenue, in the Empire State Bank.

Victory Diner Remains Have Been Removed

Soon after it had closed down in 2007, plans had been in the making to erect the Victory Diner at Midland Beach, as part of a project to upgrade the boardwalk.  Unfortunately, the early twentieth-century diner was destroyed when Hurricane Sandy hit Midland Beach.  After a shady operation, the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation dismantled and disposed of the diner’s pieces.

Stop Sign Still Needed in Westerleigh

The intersection of Clinton B. Fiske Avenue and Waters Avenue has been the site of many accidents over the years.  Last month, residents near the intersection started a petition to have the New York City Department of Transportation install a second stop sign at the site because the agency had stated that after looking into the traffic flow, the current stop sign on Waters Avenue was enough.  On May 21st, a fire truck collided with another vehicle after passing through the stop sign on Waters Avenue.  While many people debate over whose fault is was, residents near the intersection hope that this will help their case in installing a stop sign on Clinton B. Fiske Avenue.
