The fence on Shore Road damaged by the 2007 twister that blew through Bay Ridge has finally been fixed.

For years, the area near Bay Ridge Parkway, which includes benches, was cordoned off with yellow tape and completely overgrown with brush.

On December 19, nearly five and a half years later, Parks Department workers finally repaired the area, which provides some of the most sweeping views of New York Harbor.

“I am very happy to report that we were able to find the funding. It is long overdue,” said Councilmember Vincent Gentile. “I’m glad it will be done in time for the summer so people can enjoy breathtaking views of the harbor, Lower Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty.”

Josephine Beckmann, district manager of Community Board 10, said she was, “absolutely delighted. It’s been such a long time since the tornado and over the years we have had many complaints and requests to repair it,” she said. “It will restore the fence and the shoreline to its original beauty. Everyone I have spoken with is very happy that it is at long last repaired.”
