Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced the deployment of 16 rail cars to the Atlantic Beach Reef during the third year of New York's historic expansion of artificial reefs off the shores of Long Island. The Governor directed this strategic deployment of rail cars - another 16 of the 75 total rail cars donated by Wells Fargo Rail Corporation - to Atlantic Beach Reef to improve New York's diverse marine life and boost Long Island's recreational and sport fishing and diving industries. In September, the tug "Jane,"16 rail cars, and a steel turbine were dropped on Hempstead Reef, the first of multiple reef deployments in 2020.
