Plumb Beach Bike Path Repaved

The unpaved segment of the Jamaica Bay Greenway along Plumb Beach in Sheepshead Bay has been repaved! The 450-foot segment of pavement was washed away during Superstorm Sandy in 2012, creating a short gap in the Greenway . Repairs began in October 2014 and were completed in December 2014. Cyclists can now enjoy a continuous ride along the Greenway to and from Plumb Beach.
