Riis Park Beach is New York’s historic gay beach. It’s been a social & cruising spot for queer New Yorkers since the 1940’s and is still going strong.

When the weather is good, you can the vibrant gay scene.  It’s like a gay nightclub, only it’s a beach in New York. What’s not to like?

You’ll find it in Queens along the Rockaway Peninsula. The gay section is at the eastern end of the beach.
