My 2016 Love Affair with The Rockaways

2016 was the year I officially fell in love with the Rockaways. As part of my exploration of all the wild places within the boundaries of NYC, I have been obsessed with Jamaica Bay for years, and this gorgeous recently renovated 9-mile expanse of ocean front drew me right in. There's so much more for me to explore here, which I'll certainly do in 2017. View the images.
