Beachwear sure was formal back when this (undated) photo was taken. Unlike the men, at least the little girls get to bare their legs!

    Chewing out a rhythm on my bubble gum
    The sun is out and I want some
    It’s not far not hard to reach
    We can hitch a ride to Rockaway Beach!

    Rock Rock Rockaway Beach

    As a kid I had been to Rockaway Beach many times. My bathing attire was a lot less formal though. It was pre-Ramones era as well.
