Celebrate Labor Day on the beaches of New York


ORCHARD BEACH, Bronx – As Labor Day marked the unofficial end of summer, New Yorkers were able to celebrate the party with clear, sunny skies and less humidity.However, this Labor Day was different from years past as many were socially distanced and had smaller gatherings, some wearing masks at the beach.

Victoria Boon and her daughters spent the holidays enjoying a cool lunch under their parasol, cherishing family moments after what they described as a tiring summer.

While most had their socially distant beach chairs, only a few signs asking people to be six feet apart were visible.

There was no sign reminding people to wear a mask.

Unlike Long Island, Labor Day closes New York’s beach season.

On Tuesday, lifeguard chairs will be empty and signs will warn everyone not to get in the water.
