Cedar Grove beach bungalows to give way to public park

In what is likely a death blow to the private Cedar Grove Beach Club, the city Parks Department said yesterday it plans to remake a large, privately leased stretch of New Dorp Beach and open it to the public.

The club’s 41 families lease the land there from the city and decamp each summer to ancient but neatly kept waterfront bungalows.

Details for the makeover are not immediately available but the shoreline and adjacent meadows used each summer by the beach club will be spruced up with amenities, opened to the public and linked to nearby Oakwood and New Dorp beaches, Parks says.
