Among hundreds of vintage photos I am sorting through and sharing in the upcoming weeks, I found this picturesque scene. Two photos taken in 1965 feature the "Captree Boat Basin", on Jones Beach Island:
On Google Maps, we can see that after 56 years, Captree Boat Basin still bears the same name. It is located on Jones Beach Island, near Captree Island. The bridge seen in the photo appears to be the Robert Moses Causeway, crossing the Great South Bay going back to Long Island.
Captree State Park offers two large fishing piers, making it a hotspot for fisherman and picnickers. Captree Boat Basin offers the largest public fishing fleet on Long Island for those looking to do a little saltwater fishing. Sightseeing excursions are also available. You can visit their website at captreeboatbasin.com for details. (Note: MyGenealogyAddiction.com is in no way affiliated with Captree.)
Stay tuned for more!
