NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — There were more reports of shark sightings off beaches in our area Wednesday.

The Parks Department says there were multiple sightings of sharks along the length of Rockaway Beach in Queens.

The beach closed to swimming as a result.

There have been numerous shark sightings this summer. Experts say one reason is bunker fish swimming close to shore are attracting the sharks.
