PRESS CONFERENCE AT CITY HALL
On Saturday, March 23, 2013 John Cori, Eddy Pastore and the Friends Of Rockaway Beach movement took to the steps of City Hall in NYC.
On the agenda was a call for immediate sand replenishment and beach barriers to protect the homes, businesses and property of Rockaway from ocean surges and extreme high tides.
Along with John and Eddy, resident speakers from the Rockaway and Broad Channel Communities included Peter Coreless, Margaret Howard Wagner, and Dennis O’Connor.
Local politicians who came out to support our cause included City Comptroller John Liu, Sen. Joe Addabbo Jr., Councilman Eric Ulrich, NYC Mayoral Candidate Sal Albanese, and Queens Borough President Melinda Katz.
All in all a great day for the people, who came together for a great cause!
