LONG BEACH - Long Beach residents got their chance to give their ideas about what they want to see when the city rebuilds the boardwalk destroyed by Hurricane Sandy.

About 85 residents took part in a focus group run by Sustainable Long Island.

Some residents said they hope to see shops and restaurants along the new boardwalk while others said they were more concerned with safety, especially concerning future storms and hurricanes.

The city says that it will use the input in the plan for the reconstruction, which is expected to cost around $25 million.

The second of four meetings on the boardwalk will be held on Feb. 11 at Magnolia Senior Center for residents living between Nevada Boulevard and the west side of Grand Boulevard.
