Ugh. Do I ever hate having to write a title like that.
Anyways. The Times has an article today about the fire & the resulting water quality issues - click here to read -
And as they mention in the article, there are now advisories against swimming at 4 beaches south of the Verranzano - here, again, is the water-quality site; advisories are now posted for Midland, Cedar, and South Beaches in Staten Island, and Sea Gate at the westernmost tip of Coney Island.
As of now, water quality at the beaches closer in to the bay is still fine and barring further changes, all programs at the club will run as planned this weekend.
We are fortunate.
