Jones Beach opened inauspiciously amidst a howling sandstorm on August 4, 1929. In the years since, it has attracted 500 million visitors and become hallowed ground to generations of New Yorkers. Today Jones Beach evokes cherished memories of long-spent youth, old friends, and departed loved ones. John Hanc will explore the traditions, institutions, controversies, and characters of this beloved seaside resort, now a state historic landmark.
