Sure we knew that Fort Tilden was going to be open this summer at some point, but we didn’t know when it would be open. Well, the folks at Bedford + Bowery are reporting that the beach is debris-free and ready for frolicking or laying on lazily now. At this moment. While you’re reading this. So someone down there is probably having a better day than you right now, as you’re cooped up in your office. Oh well, you can ruin their good fun by writing the season’s first “I went to Fort Tilden before everyone ruined it,” thinkpiece. After all, you don’t want to be the second one to write it. That would just be embarrassing.
