As I've said before, the FINS people don't listen to any one. The breach is twice as big now, and peoples homes along the south shore are flooding like never before. They don't listen to the county executive or Senator Schumer, so what are the odds that they will listen to the naturist society?

The FINS will have a major say in the outcome but the decision will be made in Washington DC at the Dept of Interior in conjunction with the National Park Service, whom the FINS report to.
In reality I do not think the decision will be overturned but I am hoping it will be. The FINS have a strong argument about not having the resources to maintain public safety for three thousand people in that area of the beach. At best they make allow clothing optional at a remote area west of the breach, where you will need to take a ferry and embark on a long walk to reach it. That will discourage the majority of the nudist from making the trek IMO.

Regardless to the effect it has on beach goers...
I think they should leave the breach just as it is now...
Great South Bay needs a good flushing in this area to bring back the eel grass and sea life...
it's been suffering for a long time...
