Pelham Bay Park

Bruckner Blvd. at Westchester Ave. , The Bronx, NY, 10462

Orchard Beach

By stephenmelinger on 6/26/2012

  • Overall Rating: 5
  • No, I would not go back!

This beach was manmade with sand brought in to fill the area. It is available to many since a busline comes into the immediate area. The surrounding area is also picturesque with City Island and fishermen nearby. The beach is nice but does not compare to Staten Island beaches which are less used and more spacious by far.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
