LI beaches replenish, ready for summer season
With Memorial Day fast approaching, Long Islanders are hoping their beaches fared well after repeated storms the past few months.
State work crews have been busy dumping thousands of cubic yards of sand on beaches that suffered severe erosion. At Robert Moses Field 5, 150,000 cubic yards of sand was put in.
At Smith Point Beach, which also took a big hit, sand has also been replenished and is ready for beach-goers.
