Beach Season Ends With A Sigh



Cool weather, overcast skies and threats of thunderstorms all day made for a quiet end to the 2011 beach season on the east end of Rockaway on Monday. By the end of the day, lifeguards from Beach Shack 17 were mostly watching over those who took to the shore to fish. Shortly after 6 p.m., with the season officially over, Parks Department staff collected lifeguard chairs for storage until next summer.
