Need A Map of NPS Bays

Where are the Bays?? There needs to be a full description and map online and in print media of all "bays" in Rockaway and Riis Park instead of posting Bay 9 or Bay 5, etc. Please, I suggest you and all your partners and the Federal government, (Gateway), to give full directions, (and map) instead of just listing an event at Bay this or that!

I live across the pond, (Brooklyn), and want to come over tomorrow to see some events and spend my money Sunday July 22, but don't know where to go! I've been Googling for literally hours and can't find directions or a map of the Bays!

Two events, a tour and dance take place at Bay 9, and a health fair is at Bay 5. No maps, old or new, local or Federal (Gateway), show any "Bays" I checked Forgotten NY and other history as well as nature sites about Riis Park and Rockaway to no avail. Listings in The Wave online and organizations (such as the Kite Festival), only give "Bay_, (Bay and it's number), but not directions nor a map!

Is "bay" some terminology that only locals use? While Googling I found many event listings that have or had their event at various numbered bays, but NONE gave the correlating street! I feel marooned!

Thank you for your help. I understand that you might not be able to get back to me before Sunday, but I hope you'll consider my suggestion to let EVERYONE know what and where the "bays" are. Thank you!
