  • If you enjoy the beach this is a very good choice. There is parking and a nice boardwalk with some shops bathrooms etc. 
  • You need to be careful walking barefoot, we found quite a bit of broken glass. Other than that, great place for any age. Catching some rays, walking, jogging, bike riding, a snack shop for a quick bite of pizza, fries, hot dogs, ice cream, etc. A fine dining restaurant also for a nice dining experience. Plenty of parking, lifeguards, and bathroom facilities. Great view of the Verrazano Bridge.
  • Easy free parking, great ice cream truck, nice fairly clean beach, cool boardwalk and pier. Biking/walking/running trail parallels boardwalk and great for an evening stroll. Recommend checking it out. No permanent food vendors, but decent bathrooms.
  • Nice scenery. 2 different types of boardwalk. Concrete and wood. It was all brought back to life after Hurricane Sandy. Fence work done nearby from LoPorto Fence CO.
  • Beautiful for a night stroll or a day at the beach. Take the free ferry to the island and enjoy this beautiful boardwalk. You can even rent bikes for the whole family and ride them on the boardwalk. Enjoy!
  • Really beautiful boardwalk here. the length of it can be walked or biked. there is also a spot to fish off the pier or just sit and enjoy the breeze.
