Residents of  St. George on Staten Island are proposing to rebuild a waterfront promenade that was damaged by Hurricane Sandy into a longer, stronger pathway between neighborhoods.

The St. George-Tompkinsville Promenade committee wants to clean up and fortify the walking path between the Bay Street Landing Developments and the St. George Ferry Terminal with berms, wetlands and oyster reefs to protect it from storm surges, DNAinfo reported.

“We’ve got this unbelievable, knock-your-socks-off, blow-the-Highline-into-smithereens, best-ever location and we really want to make it something that people can use,” Leslie Brown, a group member, told DNAinfo.

The group, Which Was Founded By The Bay Street Landing Homeowners Association, would also lengthen the path to connect Stapleton and Fort Wadsworth, while widening it for bike travel, according to the article. Members are currently gathering community support for the project, which has yet to be approved. [DNAinfo] Angela Hunt
