      For a beach, I recommend Sandy Hook, NJ. Sandy Hook is about a 90 minute to two hour drive from Midtown Manhattan. Alternatively, the Seastreak Ferry runs from Manhattan during the warmer months and is a fun excursion in itself, with nice views of the harbor and a pass under the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge. Sandy Hook has a great view of the Manhattan skyline, Brooklyn, and the Rockaways. It's also federal rather than state land

      Drive to Jacob Riis Park in the Rockaways. There's a paid parking lot there, so you have no worries about finding somewhere to put your car. On the way back to Manhattan, stop at Gloria's for takeout Roti (three locations on Nostrand Ave).
