Rockaway Boardwalk Reconstruction Project

Rockaway Beach Overview

After Hurricane Sandy, more than $140 million was invested to repair and restore Rockaway Beach. As part of this work, led by the NYC Department of Parks & Recreation and the NYC Department of Design and Construction, intact sections of boardwalk were repaired, damaged beach buildings were renovated with new boardwalk islands constructed around them, public restrooms and lifeguard stations were installed to replace destroyed facilities, and interim shoreline protection and anti-erosion measures were created. Thanks to this work, more than three million people visited Rockaway Beach last summer.

The next phase of work to restore Rockaway Beach is to design and build more resilient boardwalks, dunes, and other protective structures and create an integrated conceptual plan for restoring, relocating, or enhancing recreational facilities, concession opportunities, and pedestrian/bicycle access.
