The Riviera of New York City?

That’s the title uber-urban planner Robert Moses gave to Orchard Beach when it was first created. I’ve always been a fan of it, for its proximity to my house and to City Island, which is great to go to after a day of sunbathing and lazing around.

I’ve also been hearing contradicting stories of there being a nude section (can anyone confirm/deny this?), I wouldn’t know as I go to the same section every time.

Today, I was really disappointed, though. The beach was the dirtiest I’ve ever seen it and it didn’t help that people kept feeding those roving gangs of industrial size seagulls.

Regardless, I got some relaxation in after a very stressful week. And speaking of Orchard Beach, check out the summer snapshot I did there for the NY Daily News a few weeks ago.

    Hey Lisa,
    Congrats on the SUMMER SNAPSHOT. That’s pretty cool. And by the way, that’s the first time I’ve seen a hummingbird, thanks šŸ™‚
