NEW BENCHES ON BRIDGE STREET

 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.
