Addabbo Summer Kickoff At Rockaway Beach



Senator Joseph P. Addabbo, Jr. joined Queens Borough President Melinda Katz, Assemblywoman Stacey Pheffer Amato, Council Member Donovan Richards, U.S. Congressman Rep. Gregory Meeks, local civic leaders, and representatives from New York City Department of Parks and Recreation, on May 27, along the boardwalk at Beach 94th Street in Rockaway Beach, to officially kick off the start of summer beach season. “With the boardwalk now complete and the new citywide ferry in operation, I expect this may be one of the best summer beach seasons Rockaway has seen in years,” Addabbo said. Much of the boardwalk was destroyed by Superstorm Sandy, in 2012, which swept across the peninsula, leaving a path of destruction in its wake. “With all of these new improvements to the boardwalk and the new cashless tolls, travelers have more reason than ever to visit the peninsula,” Addabbo said. “Whether you’re just looking for an afternoon bike ride, or looking to paddle out from one of the many surfing beaches, or just soaking up the sun, Rockaway Beach will be the place to be this summer.” Senator Joseph P.
