US begins to dismantle five Cape cottages
Chatham residents say buildings not in danger
The Cape Cod National Seashore’s push to demolish five cottages it considers dangerously vulnerable has come to shove on a remote barrier beach, and many townspeople are outraged. Despite loud opposition from Chatham residents and officials, workers have begun stripping insulation and removing sinks and windows from a cluster of spartan homes that generations of families have used as an isolated getaway on the Atlantic Ocean. The work is scheduled to be completed by April 1.
