Beachcombing in the Cold
Do real beach lovers love the beach all year round? Yes. The sands of the Rockaways are great for hiking in the winter when there's no crowd, but maybe a few surfers. Top pick for urban explorers is the grounds of Fort Tilden where relics of the fort's past are getting taken over by nature.
