The Glen Cove Downtown Business Improvement District is continuing its program of streetscape improvements with new seating recently installed at the bus stop locations on Bridge Street: near the entrance to the Pratt Blvd. parking area, and at the side of the Post Office. The cast-metal and recycled plastic benches are sturdy, weather-resistant, and feature attractive scroll design armrests for comfortable seating.
The Downtown BID plans to introduce more furnishings in several areas in downtown, aided by a grant secured with the help of Nassau Legislator Delia DeRiggi-Whitton.
