“Great beach. Nice clean water. Weekends way too crowded, but that's Long Island. Field 3 restrooms are nice and clean. recently could not get into field 3 so visited field 2. Restrooms a complete nightmare!! Long lines for ladies restroom..stench of urine..dirty..outdated..not sure where the ten dollars a carload goes but I would make those eyesores a priority.”
