Jones Beach, Long Beach/ Lido Beach/ Atlantic Beach, Fire Island, The Hamptons, Montauk. Those are all not within city limits.
If you want beaches within the city limits there is Manhattan Beach ( Which is small) , Brighton Beach/ Coney Island.
Then Orchard Beach aka Chocha Beach. Staten Island has South Beach, which isn't too nice either, but it does give you great views of the Verrezanno.
