Late yesterday, I walked the beach in Avalon from my office (28th Street), north to the jetty.
I was pleasantly surprised by the lack of damage from last week’s storm (see the 2 pictures below).
The sand added during the recent replenishment (25th Street and north) provided a great buffer for the waves. From 25th to 28th Streets, there are signs that the dunes were battered by the waves, yet the established dunes remain intact.
In Stone Harbor, the beaches experienced some erosion in the areas from 106th to 111th Street , as well as in the very south end near the Catamaran beach. The Borough is working on smoothing the paths to allow safe access down to the beach.
