New York health officials are warning swimmers to stay out of the waters around West Fordham Street on City Island, as well as Throgs Beach Clubs. These two Bronx beaches may have dangerous level of bacteria and are now closed until further warning.

These two areas are close enough to Orchard Beach to cause concern to the thousands of bathers using the Orchard Beach Public Beach.
