Plumb Beach 8-23-15
Plumb Beach is either part of Gateway National Recreation Area or it isn't. There are no other choices. If it is, then dogs must be leashed by federal law, if they are allowed at all this time of year. If it isn't, then, then they must be leashed by New York City law, unless Plumb Beach is a "designated area' of a New York City park (it isn't), AND it's before 9 A.M. These pictures were taken at about 9;15, about when I counted at least 15 dogs on the beach, all but three of them unleashed. The owners were just arriving.
