Looking at the photos taken in the 50's I wonder if my older sister could have been one of the girls on the boardwalk or the beach. I have photos of her sitting on the steps of the Central Mall....she probably went to Jones Beach every day during the summer. It's a one of a kind place and may it always be so.
