If Mayor Bloomberg has his way, this is the last wooden boardwalk the Rockaways will ever see.

    The wood in the picture is still usful. Teak and other woods like it are extremely durable and weather resistant. An enterprising contractor is going to make a killing recycling that wood into ‘artisenal boardwalk’ flooring. It is surprising that it hasn’t been scavenged already.

      Plenty of people have their eyes on it. There were about 20 million cops stationed in the Rockaways on the day I took this photo — most of them were just standing in the middle of intersections, yawning, but perhaps their presence is why the wood hasn’t been illicitly snapped up.
