This weekend is the unofficial end of summer and due to the pandemic, this year is going to be very different.
Many Labor Day weekend events have been canceled or are going virtual, and even holiday travel is expected to be much less.
AAA numbers have seen a decline in travel, considering there are multiple states on the city’s quarantine list.
Beaches like Coney Island or Orchard Beach will remain open this weekend from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Face coverings are still needed, except while in the water and social distancing is mandatory.
Rules for city pools are the same. Dozens of pools will be open for families to enjoy, but there is a capacity limit. Outdoor pools will open at 11 a.m. and close at 7 p.m. Museums and zoos around the city are also open, but visitors must reserve a ticket ahead of time.
