The federal Works Progress Administration (WPA) transformed what is now Plattsburgh’s City Beach “from a small inadequate watering place to its present high state. The bath house was enlarged, board walk constructed, nearly a mile of sandy beach graded and cleared, diving floats installed and a refreshment stand and parking area constructed so that it is now possible to take care of more than 10,000 bathers at one time.” (Plattsburgh Daily Press)
