Report Card on Beaches 2007

Guess what? According to New Yorkers for Parks (NY4P), New York City beaches are performing poorly overall

NY4P is the only independent watchdog for all the City’s parks, beaches and playgrounds. They aren’t new either, they have been doing this for nearly 100 years.

They graded the beaches on 4 major service areas

  1. Bathrooms
  2. Drinking Fountains
  3. Pathways
  4. Shoreline

NY4P has 4 goals with releasing this report.

  1. To provide city residents with an assessment of how each of the seven beaches is performing in comparison to each other. This easily accessible online information helps communities advocate for improved services for their beaches.
  2. To provide an independent assessment of beach performance from year to year against a defined minimum level of service. This creates accountability for providing both this defined level of service as well as improvements for every beach.
  3. To spark debate among communities, public agencies and advocates about how best to maintain and improve public beaches in need. The Report Card on Beaches provides a valuable service by identifying those beaches in greatest need, but more importantly, The Report Card indicates how we might begin to address that need.
  4. To highlight high- and low performing beaches, as well as systemic issues, in order to identify and implement best practices citywide.

Why a report card?

Waterfront access in New York City is precious, and the 14 miles of public beaches offer some of the few points along the shoreline where any New Yorker can jump in the water and swim. Beaches also afford opportunities for boating, birding, strolling, surfing, and relaxing. The Parks Department is responsible for ensuring that beaches are clean, safe and available for public use. The Report Card on Beaches highlights and monitors this important component of the Parks Department’s inventory, and the results show that our beaches need additional care.

Results are below the fold. Kiddie beach isn’t going to be on the list.

Biondo’s House Does Not Comply

Remember Dr. Ron Biondo? He is the president of Manhattan Beach Civic association, that called beach goers “thugs” in an email. Now he is in some new hot water, this time with the DOB.

Dr. Ron Biondo and Judy Baron, members of the Manhattan Beach Civic Group, both live on Exeter Street in separate homes. Both homes have complaints that were issued on May 7, 2007.

Biondo had another complaint on June 12 and received a violation three days later. The work done did not conform to approved plans. The work dealt with a rear extension on his porch. Biondo needs to comply by August 1, or he will be issued a fine, according to the Department of Buildings. Biondo, however, intends to fight the matter in court.

No action was taken for either by the Department of Buildings.
