Some Long Islanders decided they’d rather be cold than hot and headed to the Town of Oyster Bay Ice Skating Center in Bethpage on Friday to avoid the hot temps.
Others braved the sun and spent the day at Jones Beach.
George Gorman, with New York State Parks, said over the past two days, they’ve seen over 400,000 people at Jones Beach and other parks and beaches on Long Island.
Despite the hot temperature, PSEG Long Island and Island Harvest ran a donation site outside of the Levittown Stop & Shop, where people can donate non-perishable food items, pet food and household items for those struggling to make ends meet.
The campaign is called “Power to Feed Long Island,” and donation sites will be set up in different locations during the summer months.
