 n.— «The trip to Rockaway Beach involves riding the A train over a different sort of New York landmark: Jamaica Bay. At the 116th Street stop is a busy area with delis and beach shops and, where 116th Street meets the ocean, an open-air establishment called the Sand Bar where a mix of locals and DFD-ers (local shorthand meaning “down for the day”) drink at the bar or at picnic tables overlooking the boardwalk.» —“Too Darn Hot? Hop the ’Sea’ Train” by Corey Kilgannon New York Times Aug. 15, 2008. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
