FORT TILDEN BEACH

Several of my fabulous young friends have recently been ranting about Fort Tilden – for instance my brilliant friend, artist Boris Glamocanin, is a regular and frequently sends me the most exquisite images made there on the beach! With Labor Day weekend just ahead, and being curious ourselves, we decided we might as well make this an even longer weekend and so set off to explore the place. We loved it. It’s actually quite an easy jaunt from town. and if you go now, you can see Katharina Grosse’s installation, Rockaway. It’s a vibrant project made on and around the decaying former aquatics buildings at Fort Tilden that had been devastated by hurricane Sandy. The work acts as a (defiant?) celebration of these buildings, their history and the people who used them.

Beach AND art really makes for the most perfect combo! Needless to say, it’s all well worth a visit.

Dressed for an afternoon at the beach, I’m sporting a Ralph Lauren Denim and Supply Co. olive linen cardigan, Uniqlo white cotton pique knit top, Polo Ralph Lauren purple striped ikat cargo shorts, Louboutin black leather sandal/espadrilles, Tom Ford “Marco” sunglasses and a hat from the Sugar Mill, Harbour Island.
