Yes, indeed it is. This was taken in January 1989.

Right state, but wrong island and beach.

Second guess would be Smith Point State Park, Shirley, Long Island.

But it is basically not a different island.

And why the square sunglasses? Snow glare, preparation for nuclear holocaust?

If Long Island, presumably southern beach not the Sound-facing part?

Not Smith Point State Park. This island is quite long , but not Long Island. I remember lots of horseshoe crabs on the shoreline, and getting ribbed by our US hosts when we mentioned where our afternoons drive had ended up, due to the apparent reputation of this location.

Broadreach, that's the customary black maskers to preserve the anonymity of two officers of Aunty Bettys war canoes

Also a lot of kite flying going on at the beach.

After checking on Google maps, Smith Point State Park is at the eastern end of Fire Island, so technically Finfly1 was correct, and can take control.

Not a doppelganger, but the Auditorio Alfredo Kraus over on Gran Canaria definitely gets into the concrete monstrosity category also. Perhaps it's the local industry. Nice sound inside though.
