The final steps of the new Hamilton Beach boardwalk are being constructed and it could be opening up soon.
The “boardwalk,” which will now be a cement path connecting Hamilton Beach to Old Howard Beach, has been fully paved and railings have been installed, according to Councilman Eric Ulrich’s office, which is overseeing the plans.
The main portion of the project has been done by the NYC Department of Citywide Administrative Services (DCAS). The last remaining portion of it, which is to add the ramp connecting the train station to the boardwalk, has to be done in partnership with the MTA since they own that portion of the land.
Work started on the path in May and was scheduled to finish by the end of September, but building the ramp has prolonged this process.
