Plan revealed to rebuild Long Beach boardwalk
LONG BEACH - Officials revealed a plan to rebuild the boardwalk destroyed during Superstorm Sandy in Long Beach today.
Sen. Charles Schumer said he plans to make sure the city has the money to bring it back the right way.
Schumer wants to make sure FEMA supplies enough money to rebuild the boardwalk so it's resistant to future storms. Schumer says he wants it rebuilt with tougher, tropical hardwood like the Atlantic City boardwalk.
Officials say the wood costs a little more, but Schumer says it will last much longer, and stand a better chance if another storm like Sandy hits Long Beach.
