Post Beach Time
Wednesday, September 30, 2020
We are into the post-beach season now.
At the beach, though, there are more than the usual number of people.
Those who are able to work at home are choosing to do that from the family beach house.
Those who want to permanently escape the current state of the New York metro area are buying homes at the beach.
So in the beach community, which is in New Jersey, there are many more restaurants and stores open than usual. And the crowds are still coming. With the warm temperatures, there is still a holiday feeling. Restaurant parking lots are covered with huge, high tents, and families are eating out. Musicians are playing. People are drinking and partying -- all with masks and social distancing.
New Jersey, New York, and Connecticut have successfully been able to re-open slowly and carefully.
It almost feels like normal.
