THE BRONX - Summer has officially arrived and Bronx residents are welcoming the nice weather by visiting the shore.

Droves of beachgoers flocked to Orchard Beach today, welcoming the rising temperatures and clear skies.

"I'm so happy that the summer arrived so I can come out here and get me a nice tan," said one resident.

If you can't make it to the beach, there's still plenty of time to visit the area. City beaches will remain open through Labor Day.
