Folowing is from an e-mail sent to me by a park official: "I just wanted to alert you that the path along the Rockaway River in Grace Lord Park, Boonton,  is closed until further notice.  There was SEVERE erosion along the river as a result of Hurricane Irene.  There is now a drop off of 50-80 feet from one area of the path to the river below.  The path is blocked with wooden snow fencing.  I viewed it from the other side of the river myself yesterday, I was near tears.  That naturally, beautiful river bank is now a scraped and scoured 60 foot wall of soil."  .
