Envisioning a noble beachfront park so ordinary people could enjoy a slice of the good life, master builder Robert Moses set out to transform a little-known barrier island off Long Island's South Shore into the civic masterpiece now known as Jones Beach State Park. All vacationers and day-trippers had to do was simply follow its beloved mascot, the Jones Beach seahorse, for an unforgettable day of sand and surf, or for a swim in the saltwater pool at the West Bathhouse, a stroll along the boardwalk, or a friendly match of shuffleboard, pitch-putt golf, or archery. The Indian Village also awaited, as well as fine dining at the Boardwalk Restaurant, a musical at the Marine Theatre, or a night of dancing to the songs of Guy Lombardo.
