APPLIED GEOGRAPHY. MASS TRANSIT AND BEACH ACCESS IN NEW YORK CITY

While local recreation planners are seeking ways to alleviate present and future beach crowding by the development of new beaches, they also are searching for ways to improve access to existing beaches so that urban residents, especially the relatively poor urbanite, may enjoy the opportunities offered by waterside facilities. Although the mass transit system of a city is bound to have a major role in this planning, little is known about the use of mass transit in comparison with alternative means of beach access. This report focuses on these access questions and seeks to provide some recommendations that may aid planning efforts.
