Bridgeport: Fishing Pier in Limbo

”Anglers, who for decades tasted both joy and frustration at the Al Bennett Fishing Pier, are hoping it will be rebuilt and lengthened.

”The 175-foot pier at Seaside Park was left a mangled wreck by Irene when the storm blew through the state the weekend of Aug. 27. The storm caused other damage to the 325-acre park. Sidewalks were smashed to bits, seawater-soaked grass died off and some salt-sprayed trees may have to be replaced, too.”
