Gross and beautiful - Dead Horse Bay, New York - Sea Glass Report

Brooklyn Beach known as Bottle Beach or Dead Horse Bay

COVERED (and I mean COVERED) in bottles and glass.  Not always the best tumbled glass but I have found AWESOME pieces there!

Under the Marine Park Bridge in Brooklyn NY

I have been collecting, selling and researching sea glass for a lifetime.

OdysseySeaGlass appreciates this and all reports we receive. However, when evaluating a report, use good judgment.

  • No close photos were included with this report.
  • Beach was not given a clear rating (stating number of jewelry-grade pieces found per hour).
  • The map would indicate that this beach is very protected and would not receive enough wave action to produce any jewelry-grade glass.
As always, we remind folks that sea glass beach reports are not confirmed by Lin or me at Odyssey Sea Glass unless otherwise stated.

Reports that do not include photos of the sea glass found are less reliable. So use your own judgement in deciding whether to travel to this particular beach or not.

My husband and i found this on the beach in Glen Cove, New York. The North shore of Long Island has some great sea glass finds.

His collection comes from Lake Erie in Hamburg, NY - USA.

Dead Horse Bay is CLOSED. In the last 2 weeks , there have been barricades and Do Not Enter signs by the National Park Services.
There is apparently radiation detected and that's what's being cleaned up. Do not know if it will ever open again for treasures to be found.
