NEW YORK (AP) - Work to return Jacob Riis (rees) Park Beach to its pre-Sandy days is underway.

The National Park Service says sand replenishment at the Gateway National Recreation Area began on Tuesday.

The mile-long shoreline will get about 200,000 cubic yards of sand.

Riis Beach is located in Queens on the Rockaway Peninsula between Beach 149th and Beach 169th streets.
