We spent the Fourth of July holiday weekend locally in Brooklyn. The city is very quiet on these long summer weekends, with lots of people retreating to beach or country homes.
On the 4th, we took the A train to Rockaway Beach -- our first time there. The area is getting a lot of attention lately with their Rockaway concessions, and no denying,
that's what brought us out there. We had a beautiful day all-around, though. I doubt I'll ever get totally used to crowded beaches after growing up visiting the foggy beaches of the Oregon coast, but I am learning to appreciate this kind of beach life too.
