A ‘little boulevard’ – flags and porches, front cottages, Long Beach summer
In 2018 Rockport widened much of the Long Beach seawall walkway beginning at the Gloucester side and stretching past the midpoint. Recently crews began extending this project straight through to the end point on the Rockport side. The work is expected to be completed in a couple of weeks.
Rocky explained it’s done in segments and moving right along.
Besides this big project, the getting ready for summer bustle is in full swing. Annual staircase return? Check! Front row cottage work? Check! New patio and masonry work by the former hotel (photos 2018 vs 2019 below) where the stone patio was compromised, various yardwork and private deck repairs are visible along the promenade.
Plenty of prior GMG posts (search “Long Beach seawall”); here are a few:

A ‘ steady stream’ of customers. The new beach footbath is the same as the ones at Stage Fort Park. Looks nice!
