Now that I’ve exhausted most of the neighborhoods in northeast Brooklyn, perhaps the southern shore is looking to take a monopoly. Arlene picked this week’s neighborhood out of the hat.
Plumb Beach (sometimes spelled “Plum”) was an island until 1940, when it was connected to Sheepshead Bay under the Shore Parkway project. It is now part of the federally-owned Gateway National Recreation Area.
Here’s another picture from that run I took in February along the coast. This one appears to be at low tide. There is a parking area from where drivers and their passengers can access the beach, so I expect more sunbathers out for this final week of summer. Maybe I’ll also take a trip over to Dead Horse Bay.
