THE BRONX - Orchard Beach is celebrating its 75th anniversary this week, and many headed there today to kick off their Memorial Day weekend.

In preparation for the upcoming beach season, Orchard Beach underwent multimillion-dollar renovations. Sand was added to the shoreline, and the south jetty was expanded to reduce erosion.

The bathrooms have also been redone, and the Havana Cafe has opened on the boardwalk, offering Cuban cuisine to beachgoers.

Orchard Beach officially opens for the summer today.
