ROBERT MOSES - Long Island's fragile coastline could be in for a beating this weekend as Hurricane Irene threatens the East Coast.

Parks officials say they're concerned about all barrier beaches along the South Shore, especially Robert Moses State Park, which has already suffered severe erosion over the past several years.

Crews have also begun removing trash bins and lifeguard stands in preparation for the storm. Gov. Cuomo declares state of emergency in NYWeekend storm causes serious erosion at Robert Moses
