With Memorial Day just around the corner, most New Yorkers have two options–sit in endless hours of traffic trying to get to the beaches on the Hamptons or down the Jersey Shore, or have a staycation in the city. And while the latter may sound boring (and hot!) there are plenty of beaches to hit up within the boroughs. From the Rockaways to Fort Tilden, we’ve rounded up the seven best sandy spots in New York City.
This freestanding home looks more like it belongs in a hobbit shire than New York City. But it’s indeed up for sale in Manhattan Beach, Brooklyn, at 167 Beaumont Street. It’s a cozy stucco house, set back and surrounded by a large, lovely lawn. It’s also located just a few blocks from the shores of Brighton Beach. So how much for this unique piece of property at the edge of Brooklyn? $1.2 million.
