Comment: .. Looking across the Great South Bay toward Fire Place Neck (Brookhaven Hamlet).
Seen more-or-less half-way down the boarewalk is where the old "Burma Road" crossed. This mostly unpaved road went the entire length of Fire Island, and would have been used by vehicles when travel along the beach was impossible. Since most of Fire Island is now designated as a "more-or-less" wilderness area, much of the road today has become overgrown and barely passeable.
