The following Bronx attractions are sure to cause plenty of traffic throughout the areas surrounding City Island and Orchard Beach. Many surrounding areas may be subject to closure by members of NYPD.

Wednesday, June 4th J-Lo aka Jeni from the block, or Jennifer from The Bronx will be performing at a music concert at Orchard Beach from 5-10P. According to event organizers, as many as 25,000 may be showing up to that Jennifer Lopez Fiesta.

Then on the last Friday in June, there will be another program on Orchard Beach. This time a free Independence Day Concert that will end with a spectacular fireworks display.

Both events are expected to generate traffic gridlock that may last for several hours. City Island Images suggests you plan ahead. Please, stay safe and most of all, be prepared.
