Our beloved commentator Smiles is begging forgiveness. And we are nice here at diablog.
Thus, before he makes the tiny mistake of booking himself and Mrs. Smiles a trip to Bermuda, let’s tell him about the beaches around his first stop, NY.
Pretty much everyone has heard of Coney Island, the local beach in Brooklyn.
Naturally, that close to a few million people, Cony Island, Brighton Beach:
and Manhattan Beach
can be quite crowded in July, when Smiles gets here. The picture directly above is from October,
Some people go to New Jersey, aka Nu Joisy. You might have heard of Jersey Shore, a low life TV show. Say hello to Snookie and Jwow. Tourists going there also fly out of Newark, rather then JFK. They eat pizza with fork and knife. In other words, that is a no-no for New Yorkers.
So, where do we go?
If you come to NY, you cannot miss Long Island, just look outside the airplane window. And The Rockaways there are quite popular. It is a subway ride, take the A train, and you are right there. Others like Jones Beach.
But for Smiles we have something much better.
According to the National Geographic we have the 4th most beautiful beach in the world. Yep, eat this Hawaii (5th + 10th), The Hamptons are ahead of you. And you, Bostonians, with your Nantucket (6th) and Cape Cod (not even on the list!), can kiss my ass. I said kiss, not kick. And what about Smiles’ preferred beach destination, Bermuda? Lemme check. Nope. Not even on the list.
Anyway, The Hamptons this is where the rich and famous have their weekend homes. Shut up, Massachusetts, Martha’s Vineyard did not make the list either. To The Hamptons NYers go for the summer. Poor bastards like me go by bus or train (LIRR), some people go by car (enjoy the traffic jam) and the rich or lucky ones go by helicopter.
East Hampton and Sounthampton, that’s where Smiles should go. Or to Fire Island – no smoking at the beach, Smiles – or Shelter Island. Both equally beautiful, yet less snobby and expensive. Since Smiles seems to be on a “I-need-to-get-that-cheap-trip”.
Waiting for Spring,
