The Beaches of New York City

5/27/2013 - By Marea Edynak

When most visitors think about NYC they think Skyscrapers, Times Square and Central Park. But we are a lot more than that. Did you know we have 14 miles of beautiful Beaches?

 

All of the 5 boroughs except Manhattan border the Atlantic Ocean or Long Island Sound. And from Manhattan you can get there by public transportation: subway, bus and ferry for $2.50.

 

Super storm Sandy damaged many of the beaches but couldn’t stop New Yorkers. Just 8 months later all NYC beaches are mostly repaired and they all officially opened this weekend.

 

 During beach season, lifeguards are on duty daily, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

 

To choose which beach you want to visit and for directions go to nyc.gov/parks
