The resiliency of New York City - that is what some officials are saying is the reason the beach swimming season has been extended through next Sunday. The hot weather may also be another reason. Either way, it is good news for people who still want to hit the beaches.

Beginning Tuesday, September 8, stretches of Rockaway Beach in Queens, Coney Island and Brighton Beaches in Brooklyn, Midland and South Beaches in Staten Island, and Orchard Beach in the Bronx will remain open through September 13.

The beaches operating on an extended schedule will open daily from 10 AM to 6 PM.
