Will Beach Nourishment Save Coney Island?

  • Aired: 10/29/2013
  • 02:45
  • Rating: NR

Its new roller coaster Cyclone towers over a beach nourishment project, where dredges pull up sand from the ocean floor and pump it back onto the shore. This has been a Coney Island tradition since the 1920s, but is it enough to save the beach?
