Well, at least someone's at the beach. Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr. hung out with 5th graders from PS 79 earlier today. He joined other elected officials and Parks Commissioner Adrian Benepe to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the beach's creation and the opening of beach season. Over the off-season, Orchard Beach received an infusion of 268,000 cubic yards of new sand to fight off erosion. Orchard Beach is open daily and staffed with lifeguards from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
