I'm surprised they opened it. No beach, driving on the dunes? What are they thinking?

I'm all for access but but who the hell made the call to open the thumb when it looks like that? Shame on the idiots in the "dunes". That should really help with the powers that be.:mad:

those pictures are out of control!... sadly the beach did not look anything liek that even after Sandy. I was at the thumb christmas morning, and even during hightide there was plenty of driving room... the beach drastically changed over the winter.

Sad to see how clueless or inconsiderate people really are.  But honestly, what were they thinking by opening access???  There's nowhere to drive but on the dunes!!

Anyone know if / when Demo point is opening?  Can you even drive over the bridge to Robert Moses fields?  thanks, Chris

 

Still closed no driving over the bridge still has cops patrolling entrance

Was there today. Saw at least six people stuck just before the club house pole. It pretty much looks the same. At high tide you have to drive thru the dunes at certain points. The sign that ends at area 1 is gone so I took a drive down to Gilgo. Gilgo is the widest I have ever seen it. I can't see them not opening it up after the repairs to the east bound lane of ocean parkway.



Across the inlet there is a new sand bar island right off Demo. I guess that will be great for boaters.



Fished for a couple of hours, came up empty. I think the water is around 45.
