What is your favorite beach spot in New York? With summer fast approaching—and the hot, hot weather, too—I want to map out a few sandy destinations well in advance. I’ve been to Montauk, the North Fork and all the way to Long Branch in New Jersey (they’re all gorgeous!), but I’m looking for something that’s a bit more close by. An easy day trip, if you know what I mean.
Right now, Water Taxi Beach out on Governor’s Island looks like the closest spot, especially with the free ferry to get there from Brooklyn. Have you been? Would love to hear your recommendations for places to soak up the sand and sun in New York!
