By Sarah Kautz, Preservation Director, Preservation Long Island.
We recently joined Governor Andrew Cuomo and several representatives from the State Parks Regional Office at the opening ceremony for the newly restored Marine Dining Room at Jones Beach State Park’s West Bathhouse.
Having spent many years advocating for preservation at Jones Beach, Preservation Long Island is excited to see this magnificent landscape and architectural gem rehabilitated as part of the ongoing NY Parks 2020 initiative.
We’re also thrilled that Preservation Long Island’s detailed study of Jones Beach State Park helped inform an historically sensitive approach to the park’s rehabilitation plan.
Preservation Long Island applauds the Governor’s leadership in renewing New York State’s commitment to the stewardship of Jones Beach State Park. We look forward to celebrating the next preservation milestone at one of the world’s most spectacular destinations for public recreation.
