Bronx Riviera Opens This Weekend; Plus Other Things To Do in the Boogie Down

Well, at least someone's at the beach. Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr. hung out with 5th graders from PS 79 earlier today. He joined other elected officials and Parks Commissioner Adrian Benepe to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the beach's creation and the opening of beach season.
