PBS in New York showed a really engaging documentary on the creation and history of Jones Beach last night. It reminded me of what a "special" destination this is and how fortunate we are that Robert Moses was convinced to include a bicycle path on the Wantagh Parkway.
mmmm...........did they mention he was a racist and a bigot and purposely built the bridges on the parkways too low for buses so that minorities and poor people couldn't come there?

No, but I already knew that. I'm not commenting on the man. Having read "The Power Broker" cover-to-cover, I know exactly what Moses was. Regardless, I am glad to have Jones Beach, and it makes me feel good to see all colors enjoying it.
