• Short Summary

    Great footage of people having fun at Jones Beach State Park, New York.

  • Description

    Titles read: 'The Playground of AMERICA'.

    New York, United States of America.

    M/S of a seahorse on a street sign pointing to Jones Beach (State Park). L/S of some kind of tall tower or memorial, presumably at the beach. Hundreds of cars are seen in a special car park. General view of the beach and promenade. People take refreshments at a "tea terrace".

    Great shots of people in swimsuits and beachwear on Jones Beach. A woman sunbathes. Young men and women run into the sea. In a salt water pool we see more people having fun. Women and men in two lines do exercises on the beach. We see some of the other leisure activities available: a couple play golf, people learn archery, children play at a sandy playground.

    Shots of sailing boats on the bay. Further up the beach where it is less crowded we see people standing on the beach and fishing with rods. Nice shot of three young women running over the sand dunes towards camera. A couple stand on the dunes and look out at the view. Another couple run into the waves.

    This is great! I wonder what it's like now?
