According to New Yorkers for Parks’ latest report card, a citywide independent organization championing quality parks and open spaces, Rockaway Beach scored 90 (A-) which is the highest of any NYC beach. Pathways and shoreline each earned an A while bathrooms and drinking fountains each earned a B. It’s been a steady climb from a score of 56 back in 2007 so let’s keep Rockaway Beach as the top destination for years to come.
