ROBERT MOSES STATE PARK - As Long Islanders hit the beach for the unofficial last weekend of summer, many are finding one of the Island?s most popular destinations less accessible than usual.
Many hoping to take in some sun at Robert Moses State Park today had to wait hours or were turned away. Field 4 was closed today due to erosion.
That field, along with Field 5, has been closed periodically throughout the summer.
Parks officials say if there isn't sand replenishment soon, there may not be much of a beach to visit next Labor Day weekend.
