After sitting on the demolition chopping block due to deterioration and the high cost of repare, the Jones Beach water tower was spared from being dismantled and instead received a much needed facelift. The Long Island landmark was refurbished this past year. Water damaged bricks and the tower’s aging copper top were replaced.
I drive passed the Jones Beach water tower on a regular basis, and it’s great to see that this icon of the Long Island coastline was rebuilt and not forgotten. This could have been a major loss.
