The Riis Beach Cooperative is a collection of food and retail vendors, bars, live music, events, and good times. Spread across the nearly 1-mile-long boardwalk at Jacob Riis Park, our seaside oasis offers something for everybody.
Dubbed "The Peoples Beach," Jacob Riis Park, located on New York City's Rockaway peninsula, is an easily accessible beach escape any day of the week.
