Geocache Description:

Tiny magnetic nano, please bring your own pen and tweezers. Check out the breathtaking views of the NY harbor and the Verrazano. You can hardly remember that you're still in NYC whether you play in the playgrounds, the bocci courts, the dog runs, the running path, on the beach or on the boardwalk.

The cache is a very small magnetic nano. Please seriously consider bringing tweezers. This area gets a lot of use, so please be cautious of muggles. This cache is accessible at all times. 

This trail of caches is intended to bring cachers to the lovely parks, multi-use path, boardwalk, beach and oceanfront here on Staten Island. These grounds are maintained through a partnership between the city Park's Department and the National Park Service which means no caches in the park area. All caches on this trail will be found outside the park area; most will require you to cross the street (Father Capadanno Blvd.)

This first cache on the Boardwalk trail is found near the parking at the start of the boardwalk. The views of the bridge here are magical. The 2.5 beach and boardwalk are named for FDR, and extend from Fort Wadsworth to Miller's Field Gateway Recreational Area. The multi-use path extends further to sleepy, idyllic Cedar Grove Beach.

There are a couple of clues in the cache name as to where to find this nano. Happy hunting and enjoy the beach and the Borough of Parks!
