The Rockaways
For such a wide stretch of territory, the quality level here is pretty uniform, and reassuring. None of the areas monitored reported any water samples that exceeded state standards, and the one area that was officially rated—116th St. to 126th St., near Jacob Riis Park and Fort Tilden, which don't have info marked on the map—merited a four star rating in 2012. Not shabby at all.
