Long Islanders dive in for last summer hurrah
It?s gearing up to be a sunny end to a very soggy summer.
This weekend marks the unofficial end of summer and the weather seems to be cooperating, so many Long Island residents say they?re staying put for Labor Day.
There?ll be less sand to sit on at the beach though. Last month, Hurricane Bill ate away at Long Island?s shorelines, so parks officials are limiting parking at some of the beaches.
AAA reports about 13 percent fewer New Yorkers will travel far this Labor Day than last year?s. They say it?s because of the economy and Labor Day?s late date. Still, police say they?re beefing up patrols.
