Summer’s End

Fallopia Editors recently took a day trip out to the secluded beaches at Fort Tilden in an end-of-summer homage. From Cobble Hill in Brooklyn it was an easy journey. To get to Fort Tilden Beach on public transit, simply take the 2 or 5 train to the end of the line at Flatbush Ave. There, in front of Brooklyn College you will take the Q35 bus towards Rockaway Park. Get off when you see the beach!

It was quick and easy, less than an hour each way when we made the trip. The beach is peaceful and pristine. There were very few people there when we went on a Monday afternoon. People who were there were enjoying the last rays of summer in various levels of attire, from fully clothed (we saw a man in a gray suit carrying a shovel) to fully nude. Come and, as a neighboring bather encouraged us, be free.
