Residents head to Orchard Beach to take advantage of warm weather

Several Bronx residents took advantage of the warm weather Sunday and spent the day at Orchard Beach.



Though swimming is not yet permitted, many spent the day sunbathing.



"This is my happy place. This is where I can come, let go of all of my troubles, leave them here and go back to work," says Marta Vazquez.



Others enjoyed outdoor activities including handball and basketball.
