An aerial view of Bellmore on Sunday, Feb. 7, 2016. Sen. Charles Schumer was in Freeport on its Nautical Mile Monday Feb. 8, 2016 to urge the Army Corps of Engineers to fund a study to examine and prioritize projects to harden coastal areas of Nassau's back bays. New this year, the Army Corps has $7 million in a flood and storm damage reduction account and Schumer wants some of that money to help communities like Long Beach, Freeport, Oceanside, Bellmore and Five Towns.
