Plumb Beach Coastal Storm Risk Reduction Work in Brooklyn (before construction)

This photo shows eroded areas of Plumb Beach in Brooklyn after Hurricane Irene hit in 2011. The erosion is threatening the Belt Parkway, which is a critical piece of New York City's infrastructure. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New York District, working in partnership with the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation and the National Park Service, started sand placement there October 12, 2012, which is the first phase of coastal storm risk reduction work there.
