Vue d'ensemble

Aucu vote pour l'instant.

Breezy Point is the terminus of the Rockaway peninsula. It consists predominantly of dune/beach shoreline terrain that extends outward into the Atlantic ocean. The interior has a small central marsh area complemented by shrubbery, extensive beach grass, and a stunted tree forest which renders cover for birds. However, what makes Breezy Point significant is that it serves as a thin barrier separating the Atlantic Ocean from Jamaica Bay. This geologic occurrence provides the bayside cover waterfowl need from the rough ocean currents.
