Jones Beach looms large in the hearts and lives of millions of New Yorkers. From its windswept beginnings on the far edge of an empire to its twentieth-century status as the greatest public beachfront resort in America, it has been home to countless memories. Situated on a barrier island linked to Long Island, Jones Beach State Park is today the most popular beach on the East Coast, with some six million visitors a year.


In this evocative illustrated book, John Hanc explores the traditions, institutions, controversies, and characters of this beloved seaside resort, now a state historic landmark. His richly detailed prose comes together with a wonderful collection of archival photographs to make this a must read for anyone who has visited Jones Beach. The foreword is by ?Mr. Long Island,” longtime former Newsday columnist Ed Lowe.
