Today we went with to Jacob Riis Park, it was a great day. S said "In my dreams I never thought waves could be this big".
The park is named for the author of How the Other Half Lives. I chose to read that book in high school, was assigned to read it in college and still own it.
It is also Rock, Rock Rockaway Beach , I bought Rocket to Russia just about the same time I read How the Other Half Lives. I still have that LP too.
