The Riis Park Beach visit on a sunny day in August 2015.  The beach is on Rockaway Peninsula in New York City

New York is not known for its fine beaches but it should be.

The beach is part of the the National Gateway Park facility.  This beach was build by Robert Moses in the early 1930's and loved by tourists from Durand Wisconsin

The Riis Park Beach is clean and patrolled by National Park Rangers.  We spent over 4 hours on the beach on Monday, August 10th, 2015. The Atlantic Ocean temperatures in mid-August are in the low to mid-70's.  Swimming was comfortable and we did not get chilled when we exited the water. Thank you to the lifeguards for keeping us safe

It took us about an hour by car to get to the beach from Elmhurst Queens.  Tolls are $8 round trip and parking is $10. It may seem costly but the costs help keep the riff raff out.  The beach is also accessible by New York city bus

We could only find one concession stand open but it served out needs.  The beach was not crowded at all, partly because the city's temperatures were only in the upper 70's to low 80's on this wonderful day.

Beaches stretch for a hundred miles from the western end of the Rockaway Peninsula and toward the eastern end of Long Island.

Jacob Riis Park is part of the Jamaica Bay Unit of the Gateway National Recreation Area

We headed to see our friend Olga after our day at the beach
