New York is still hotter than 88°F (31°C) and going for a swim is one of the best reasons to travel to the outer boroughs. Travelling to Orchard Beach is like travelling to Puerto Rico without leaving New York City. Many of the Bronx’ Hispanic residents spend their weekends there. Those who know Pelham Bay Park only trough subway announcements should take their shorts and the 6 train to the final stop. The Bx12 Bus directly serves Orchard Beach.
