LIRR bridge over the channel
Reynolds Channel, named after William Reynolds, is a strait in Nassau County, New York which separates the Long Beach Barrier Island, that contains the City of Long Beach, and the villages of Atlantic Beach and Lido Beach, from Long Island and Barnum Island. The channel begins at the East Rockaway Inlet and ends at Point Lookout, where it merges with the Jones Inlet. Four bridges cross the channel: the Atlantic Beach Bridge, the Long Island Rail Road's Long Beach Branch bridge, the Long Beach Boulevard Bridge, and the Loop Parkway Bridge.
