Fire Island National Seashore
Nude sunbathing has been banned along many of the beaches of Fire Island – but not all the beaches will be affected.
Fire Island chief ranger Lena Koschmann said there’s been an increase in complaints and observations of sex, masturbation and prostitution, especially on the popular Lighthouse Beach.
Fire Island, located along the Long Island shore, is New Yorkers’ place to be in the summer time. The long main island surrounded by several small islands can be reached by a ferry ride across the Great South Bay of Long Island.
