BROOKLYN - A compromise has been reached over controversial comfort stations near the boardwalk.

Brooklyn Assemblyman Steven Cymbrowitz says the temporary bathrooms will now be placed closer to the busier section of the beach.

Neighbors of the Planned Permanent Comfort Stations had complained about construction noise, and raised structure designs, which they say would have blocked oceanfront views.

Cymbrowitz says that original plan didn't work out because of a problem setting up the support structures needed.
