rock rock rockaway beach

61km return to what i just found out looking at the map was not quite Rockaway beach

Rills park just west of Rockaway...

it wasn't untill i stopped here that i noticed the gale force wind that had been blowing at my tail the whole way in... it's going to be a long ride home

this plaza is set on the beach, the flag pole in the center is aligned with the empire state building (that's that little lump in the back between those trees)

also just read that this beach and bathhouse is another Robbert Moses site from the late 30's, he planned it as the peoples beach. he cops alot of shit for being pro car and anti people but the man knew how to build a public space.
