Beaches in the New York
and Long Island Area
Every year during the
summer months, New York City’s beaches are a favorite
recreation destination for locals as well as out-of-towners.
The locations of the beaches include the Bronx, North
Queens, Brooklyn, Rockaway and Staten Island.
NYC Parks maintains 14
miles of beaches, all of which are open from Memorial Day
weekend through Labor Day. During beach season, lifeguards
are on duty daily, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Swimming is
prohibited when lifeguards are not on duty and in closed
sections. Closed sections are marked with signs and/or red
