NYC Officials have health advisories for would be bathers at Orchard Beach. This follows a test which revealed high levels of bacteria. This contamination may be linked to floating debris, oil products or sewage.

City Island Images has been told that these waters are potentially toxic, therefore the beach could be completely closed. We have reached out to NYC officials, who have yet to indicate how long these health advisories will continue.
