Long Beach, New York: Quiet Ocean Retreat near Manhattan
Although long known as The City by the Sea, Long Beach might be more accurately described as the city in the sea—the ocean surrounds it on all sides, and to the north, a tangled bramble of estuaries and rivulets further separates the narrow beach from its Long Island neighbors. Yet despite Long Beach’s quiet seclusion, the Long Island Rail Road swiftly carries passengers to and from the heart of Manhattan, allowing urbanites a sandy interlude.
On the city’s 2.25-mile boardwalk, which was built in part by elephants during a publicity stunt, bikers and rollerbladers whiz by as others walk above the white sands or rest on wooden benches set parallel to the horizon. Park Avenue’s cheery cafés perk up afternoons, while neon-lit bars and clubs enliven nights.
