A Statement from Borough President Vito Fossella on the Reopening of Ocean Breeze Fishing Pier
We are delighted to hear that the fishing pier on the Ocean Breeze boardwalk has finally been reopened for public use. The pier is iconic for its scenic views and as a spot for recreational fishing, and we are pleased that the whole pier is fully available to Staten Islanders.
We visited the pier to review the state it was in when we first heard about its closure. We have long supported the fishing community, and we are pleased to see a positive outcome for the Ocean Breeze Fishing Pier.
We would like to thank NYC Parks for their work repairing the rusted railings in time for the 20th anniversary of the pier. We appreciate our strong working partnership with City Parks Commissioner Sue Donoghue and Borough Parks Commissioner Lynda Ricciardone.
