Many people who don’t live in NYC are surprised that there are beaches here and that some are even accessible by subway for the fare of USD 2.50 one-way. Today was my third time on Beach 67 in the Rockaways, Queens. There are a bunch of beaches in the Rockaways but I like Beach 67 because you don’t have to change from the A train to the Shuttle; it is quiet; it is a 5 min walk from the subway to the beach; and there is a pretty decent Thai spot right by the station for lunch and a lovely clean bathroom. There is no swimming but then again, why would you want to??? The water is freezing and not very clean looking (or smelling).
A few pics from the Dance Theatre of Harlem Summer street festival 2014 which took place yesterday. Beautiful dancing from the theatre’s younger performers. More photos coming in a separate post because I couldn’t put the 16x9s with the normal crops. And the spot where I was shooting from really didn’t leave me with much option to frame pics.
