Montauk
Sure, it's pretty packed this time of year. But did you really want to throw yourself into its nightmarish "meatpacking district east" nightclub scene, as chronicled in today's Times style section? No, best to make this a day trip. It's a three hour trip, so hop on the LIRR early (you can sleep and eat on the ride), spend the afternoon at the beach, spring for a lobster roll at, uh, The Lobster Roll (or a few tacos at The Hideaway) once you get hungry, maybe even visit the Montauk Point Lighthouse if you're feeling industrious. All of which can be done in time to catch the train back into Brooklyn for the night. No prolonged interaction with vacationing finance types required.
