Crescent Beach, Glen Cove NY~ submitted by Sickitten in Long Island, New York I Hesitated...I Did
This has been my secret beach for years because it isn't public.
The public beach next store is great but there's a lot of hunters out there like me.
Still, I want to share that overwhelming joy of finding loads of rare, jewelry grade pieces.
I have so much of this glass from about 12 years ago. There's so much of it that it's okay to share.
I love swapping info and secret tips with others.
If someone does go to this beach, will you let me know about how thrilled you were? I'd love to hear it.
Will post pics of 'stained' beach glass windows and my secret tips on dyeing the lesser colors on my site and then here. ~ submitted by Sickitten

Name of Beach and Comments:
Crescent Beach, Glen Cove, New York and the military academy right next to it (you have to sneak on and trespass or ask permission).
The academy used to be a chemistry school and gorgeous mansion with the landfills located right on the beach.
I've found worn down glass bottle stoppers, pink glass and loads of cobalt blue. A beach glass hunters dream.
I couldn't even stop when the sun was going down and was only forced to leave by the bugs at night.
Been collecting for 30 yrs., all over the world.
Nothing like this place! Will post pics here and on my site when I unpack some more stuff.
