Back in the mid-80s, I lived for nearly three years in Sea Cliff, a small village on the north shore of Long Island that was actually located on a cliff near the sea. I hadn't returned in the 25 years since I moved back to Arizona, but during this recent trip, I decided it was finally time (especially since it was a bright and sunny day, which generally does not work well with my type of photography) and so I rode the train an hour out from the city and walked around for a few hours. (You can visit the village's website here: http://www.seacliff-ny.gov/)
This park is located a block down the street from the office of the magazine where I worked and on those days when I would eat lunch, I would often stop here on the walk back from the deli to eat whatever it was that I bought. We also played a couple of intra-office softball games here as well ... fun times!
