Coast Guard Station Exposed Now in 2017

The old Coast Guard station located on the east side of Gilgo Beach Town Park and the entrance to Gilgo State Park is exposed more than it has been in the 20 years I have been coming here. Here is a link to more information about the Gilgo Coast Guard Station.

In the photo below, see the double bulkhead, a new one had been placed in front of the original, a lot of years passed for this picture to be taken.

Check out the original bulkhead that has popped out of the sand.

W of CG, the fence is caving here, it is gone on many of the dunes

Ocean water edge, Coast Guard Rebar smashed and exposed.

This area has suffered much more erosion that before the Super Storm Sandy event. This is a dangerous sign of how weak our beaches are to stand up to a hurricane this fall.

Please Contact your government officials, here is the current list,

Urge them to fund a Beach Replenishment Project this Fall.
