Dead Horse Bay

A neat place.
Kinda creepy, too.Bottles are scattered all over the beach along with shards of old pottery and dinerware, broken shells, bivalves, parts of shoes, old-fashioned irons, tetanus bacteria, broken pieces of plastic dolls and china figurines, the kitchen name it. The best find, though: an American Oystercatcher. Can you see it? Look for its bright orange beak.

One of my favorite places in NYC. So forlorn and haunting and fascinating. Also mucky.

Come high summer, though, you do find sunbathers spread out on the glass.
