I stumbled upon this article which is pretty irrelevant to Long Beach, NY. I’m just posting it because of the following sentence which I thought was interesting & amusing:
But we regret even more the fact that the Long Beach featured in the press release is Gewirtz’s old haunts in New York state. Long Beach, NY, has better surf than Long Beach, CA. Sometimes we just want to break down and cry.
I’ve been to Long Beach, CA and I am pleased to say, sans the weather, that our Long Beach is a much nicer town.
