Jones Beach getting a makeover
Millions of people visit Jones Beach every year. It is a famous New York destination. And Governor Andrew Cuomo announced Thursday the state will fund a 65 million dollar project to renovate and revitalize the beach and its structures.
The project will take several years and is expected to restore historical details. There will be new restaurants, vendors, sporting venues and an adventure play area. According to the regional director of Long Island state parks, Wayne Horsley, the buildings will be built to withstand flooding and wind.
