The boardwalk was severely damaged by Superstorm Sandy last year, which killed 285 people and caused billions of dollars in damage. Long Beach's new boardwalk is made of Brazilian hardwood and is estimated to have a lifespan of 30-40 year; the previous boardwalk was only scheduled to last three to seven years.
