Rockaway Beach.

The sub from Manhattan to Queens, where Rockaway Beach lies on its outskirts, eventually gives way from pitch-black tunnels under the NYC streets to running above ground and over the water. An hour and a half later I put my feet in sand for the first time all summer, familiarity immediately making me feel less homesick for a 4th spent with family. Maybe tradition for the Fourth is overrated, but I don’t think I will ever feel more at home than an afternoon spent at the beach.
