Long Beach West cottage demo continues

Here’s a bird’s-eye view from the second day of demolition at the cottage town at Long Beach West in Stratford, taken by Morgan Kaolian of Aeropix.

Removal of the 37 dilapidated homes is supported by nearly $1 million in funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The cottages are what remains of a summer community ousted due to accessibility and liability issues after a 1996 fire burned the causeway bridge linking the peninsula to the mainland.
