: Jacob Riis did have a nude "section" some years back but it was so visible to area residents from their apartment buildings that it generated too many complaints. US Park Police cracked down on it with a ticket blitz.
: Actually, you have at least three options around NY. Besides Sandy Hook (NJ) and Lighthouse LI NY), there is a nude beach to the west of Smith Point Park in Suffolk County, NY. Last time I was there, you could walk for miles in the nude.
Thank you for the info.
Some of the information about Jacob Riis seems to be pretty current though.
The last time I was in the NYC area was 20 years ago (I'm from Calif.) and I almost got in trouble because I followed the directions from the "World Guide to Nude Recreation" By Lee Baxandal. The directions were for far Rockaway beach. And apparently a law was passed the year before banning nude use of the beach.
Is the nude "section" of Jacob Riis you're refering to date back that far?
I'll check out Smith Point Park.
Thanks again for the info.
