A clean beach, but at what price?

Posted: Thursday, July 3, 2014 12:00 am

I read Daily News reporter John Wayne Ferguson’s recent paean to the public spiritedness of West End beach-front property owners for taking the bull and the expense by the horns to provide clean beaches for themselves and any other beachgoers who brave the imposing presence of huge million-and-more dollar houses close to the beach.

Their generosity is especially appreciated by all considering the many hundreds of tons of sargassum deposited on the beaches. It would be a pity to pay so much to build so close to the beach and not be able to frolic there as often as possible.
