9. Franklin D. Roosevelt Boardwalk, South and Midland Beaches, Staten Island

Miller Airfield beach
Back on Staten Island, the collective area of the Franklin D. Roosevelt Boardwalk which extends from Fort Wadsworth to Miller Field’s Gateway Recreational Area, and South and Midland Beaches is 638 acres.
Miller Airfield, which even during non coronavirus crisis, is pretty sparsely visited. You will find there an abandoned airfield, buildings and lighthouse, the beach pictured above on the waterfront, and other gems.
