What’s the best way to ring in the New Year? With a walk on the beach. This is why we’re happy to announce that in-person New Year’s Day walks are back in both NY and NJ.
Last year’s excursions were halted due to Covid restrictions, but the year the American Littoral Society will be hosting one on Sandy Hook, NJ and another at Ft. Tilden, NY on Saturday, January 1.
The walks are free and suitable for anyone able to walk a few miles, with part of that distance being on sandy beaches. Leashed dogs are welcome.
Dress for the weather and bring your own water. Be aware of National Park Service Covid restrictions, as both walks take place inside Gateway National Recreation Area units.

Expect to walk about three miles. Dress for the weather.
The New York group will meet at Building 1 of Fort Tilden in Breezy Point, NY (off Rockaway Point Blvd.) Participants will walk along the beach and dunes, as well as visit the hawk watch platform.
