Cuomo just said the beaches will reopen on Memorial Day weekend. This will be a disaster for the Q35 as those buses be crushloaded during beach season WITH the entire bus being available. This year it will be even worse with the front of the bus closed to passengers and buses being free.

 

Of course you can't social distance in a crushloaded bus, Q53 will have the same problem.

 

A couple days ago I took the B103 to Wendy's as I had a taste for their food. Going there the bus was pretty close normal crowding levels the 103 has, no way everyone on that bus was an essential worker. I took the bus to Wendy's only for it to be closed for takeout (it was drive thru only).

Perhaps the beach routes will be the ones where you need to reserve a seat ahead of time or something like that, which the MTA has thrown around as a possible idea, otherwise it will a total disaster as your predict!

So much for social distancing on the buses

Short of that bus coming close to carrying air, you're only going to get so much space to yourself on a public bus anyway....

That is some BS that it doesn’t stop at Walmart.

Unless the NICE shuttle stops being shitty, probably not.

Help me understand what that means:

No NYC lifeguards so if you swim at a NYC beach you’re on your own if there’s an incident; or that if you’re on the sand or in the water, NYPD will cute or arrest you?

(I’m from California so even in NorCal if you wanna get in the water, no one’s stopping you unless there’s an environmental hazard.)

The police don't really bother you if you're on the beach or the sand. I've been out there at 3-4 in the morning catching the breeze. Just don't get in the water.

Which is funny, in California the rule is nobody's allowed in the sand or on the beach but watersports are OK'd lol.

Even after mentally punching myself to make sense of it (all I will say is that my mind can be really weird), it still doesn't make any sense.

Who told you that?

We’d have bonfires overnight on state, county, and city beaches regularly.

Right now, the official Covid rule for SoCal is that during the day the beaches are closed, but the water is open for watersports. No idea what the overnight rule is but that's policy during Covid restrictions.

Really?

Out here in Washington they're definitely controlled because of all the wildfires in recent years. You have to do it in official fire pits and they're quick to close em as soon as air quality starts going down.

Never had that problem since all the beaches are separated from forests or combustibles by a road and at least a football field’s length of sand (versus shores that were never improved to beaches) - even in NorCal. (Plus outside of LA and Oakland, the Coastal Ranges abut the beach.)

Not that there's particularly a good time for a virus to infect anyone, but that was likely nothing more than a typo (as if to say "too").....

Fort Tilden and Jacob Riis Park in Queens, and the beach at Miller Field in SI, are federally owned. Along the Brooklyn waterfront, that is a state park north of the Williamsburg Bridge, and there are other state parks within city limits that likely will be open, including one in my backyard. Will the federally-owned parks be open?
