BRIGHTON BEACH - Boardwalk renovations are angering nearby residents in Brighton Beach.

Residents in the Oceana Residential Complex, which sits across the street from the boardwalk, say that they have not had any sleep since the construction started. They also say they don't mind the construction happening, they just want it to move further down the boardwalk.

The Parks Department is building a lifeguard stand and public bathroom that will block the residents' view.

The city says that it needs to build them to reopen the beach by Memorial Day.
