Jones Beach: American Riviera
K. Gilroy | West Islip, NY | 07/25/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a must have documentary for anyone who enjoys Jones Beach and has a fondness for history.

The old video footage and photos are a joy to view and Eli Wallach's narration is great.

Patty LaPone and Daniel Baldwin were unusual choices to be interviewed to discuss growing up at Jones Beach, but overall it is a great DVD to own."
Like being home again!!!

"To all of us who grew up enjoying Jones Beach this is like a day at the Beach. I learned alot about Jones Beach I did not know, and I worked there for several summers as a kid.

This is a very well done documentary on a place many of us love. If you ever spent any time at Jones Beach, buy this DVD. It's like going home again."
