Gov. Cuomo touts $36M in state parks upgrades

Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced that $36 million has been invested to restore the aging infrastructure at Jones Beach and other state parks Thursday.



The governor criticized past neglect while praising the beach's art deco buildings and touting the completed restoration of the West Bathhouse, which was originally built in 1931.



The upgrades include vendors that deal exclusively in goods produced in New York.



The Nikon at Jones Beach Theater is also now offering a New York-centric bar with local beer, wine and spirits.



Sunken Meadow State Park is another Long Island park that benefited from the investment.
