Donald Trump’s idea to build a “Trump on the Ocean” restaurant on Jones Beach still faces staunch opposition from local residents, and Trump is not happy. The Donald has been trying for four years to replace a landmark restaurant at the beach with what he calls “the finest dining and banquet facility in the world,” according to the Daily News. The main point of contention is the size and scope of the project, which is planned to be 76,000 square feet, to be built at the site of a 1930s restaurant at Jones Beach State Park, conceived by legendary urban planner Robert Moses. “I was going to build a magnificent building on the boardwalk that would have made Robert Moses envious and proud,” Trump told the Associated Press. The beach has had only a small snack bar since the restaurant was torn down in 2004. Trump is hoping to create a facility with sweeping views of the Atlantic and beachfront dining for as many as 1,400. But critics argue that such a large project in a flood zone could be hazardous to workers and that it could create traffic problems. [NYDN via Gawker]
