Tuesday will be another scorcher in New York City and many New Yorkers are expected to hit the beaches and cooling centers.
Mayor Bill de Blasio said Monday that more than 100 cooling centers would be open across New York City.
Cooling centers across Brooklyn were busy Monday, including Coney Island.
In the Bronx, kids made their own water slide in Soundview Park and played in the sprinklers, doing whatever they could to stay cool.
In Parkchester, commuters headed home finding that trains were pulling in every few minutes, allowing for social distancing, which is something the mayor says New Yorkers will also need to do in addition to wearing a mask if planning on heading to any cooling centers.
Whether at the beach or at a cooling center, New Yorkers are urged to follow social distancing guidelines.
