NYC has many inspiring and resting getaways. Fire Island is one of them -avoid week-ends though-. You need to take the train at Penn Station, then a bus cab to the ferry. It’s a 2.30 hours trip which doesn’t look so long. The island is very narrow but its lenght is very long : 32 miles. Bushes, heavy and compact green go through the whole place and deer show up for the sunset. Magical isn’t it ? RB.
