Ft. Tilden Beach by Aaron Wojack in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, NY, USA

Ft. Tilden is one of my favorite places in NY. It a place to escape, yet a place that other parts of the city escape to also. So you end up with some of the city there. The landscape is sparse and barren. You can see nature winning out against the old military buildings that that were placed on top of it once upon a time. The place can be completely packed or totally empty depending on when you go. Its strange and relaxing yet familiar and exciting.
