Long Beach is just 25 miles from where I live in Brooklyn.
And yet last weekend was my first visit. I had a work event to attend Sunday so after weighing my options (LIRR, Uber, taxi, car service, helicopter – just kidding!), I rented a car. My little blue Fiat was terrific!
After the event ended, I drove toward the ocean. I do that every chance I get. Isn’t the beach pretty?
I imagine Long Beach gets much more crowded in the summer. The boardwalk is all new post-Sandy.
I’ll have to go next summer to find out myself.
