Bad news, beach lovers: Gothamist reports that there's every chance the popular stretch of beach along Fort Tilden won't open this summer, for the second year in a row, after Sandy damaged it last year. "The hazardous debris in the sand (metal and broken slabs of concrete from Shore Road) is still in the sand ... What remains are the bigger things: pieces of metal, broken pieces of concrete from the road," Gateway National Recreation Area Daphne Yun said. And they haven't even assigned a contractor yet to clean it.
