Long before the first homes were built on the peninsula as early as 1902, a private duck hunting club was located at 62nd Place.

The historic pedestrian Seaside Walk Boardwalk, made of wood and built in the 1920s, is maintained by the city, and remains popular among locals seeking relaxation walks and beautiful sunsets.

From it’s early days as a duck hunting club, many well-known celebrities, creatives and everyday people find inspiration and refuge away from the hectic demands of big-city life.
