Sandy-Damaged Park Gets Funding Help
New York’s two U.S. senators have announced federal funding to help a Westchester County park recover from Hurricane Sandy.
U.S. Senators Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand announced that Westchester County will receive more than $4 million to make permanent repairs to Glen Island Park in New Rochelle, which was damaged during Hurricane Sandy in 2012. Sections of the bath house were completely demolished and half the sand on the beach was swept away. The funding is being allocated through the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s public assistance grant program, covering 90 percent of the cost.
