The Bronx's only beach is an engineering marvel. Covering a mile and 115 acres, it was originally conceived as the "Riviera of New York," and its promise is carried out in its promenade lined with shops, playgrounds, picnic areas, and more than two dozen sports courts. On hot days this beach draws tens of thousands of families, swimmers, athletes, and loungers. On cooler days, its shores make a perfect setting for peaceful strolls, and its basketball and volleyball courts and its playgrounds continue to welcome all of its neighbors.
