IMO.........N2s are usually better. But if you can only make it to N1....its still a GREAT show!!!
Jones Beach is a nice venue especially if the weather agrees. BUT if it rains....the front sections do flood. Also its a "dry" venue unless you pay the extra fee to get into the VIP section...which only has beer and wine for sale. Since its a state park you are not supposed to tailgate....but in my experience if you keep it hidden and quiet, they pretty much leave you alone.
As far as getting there, I live in the area so I always drive. Parking is pretty decent...they have several parking fields. Getting out after the show isn't all that bad. I think if you want to take public transportation you have to take a bus. Maybe someone else knows more about that.
Anyway hope you get the chance to make it to at least one night at the beach!
