  • Peaceful place to stop on your way home from the beach. Views of Manhattan and Sandy Hook. Memorial to 911 victims. Watch out for the bees under the arches!

  • This overlook of Sandy Hook and NY harbor is off the beaten path. On a clear day take some binoculars and you can actually see streets in Manhattan. Always cool there and not very busy with parking.....  more
