Hurricane Sandy Washes the Nudists Away

Just when you were losing faith in your government's ability to act promptly to save Fire Island, this monumental move should make things better...
It is good to see the Feds acting quickly to address the destruction rendered to Fire Island by HURRICANE SANDY.
BIG ANNOUNCEMENT: 


NO MORE NUDES ON FIRE ISLAND BEACH

HERE IS A MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT. (THANKS TO THE GREAT FIRE ISLAND WEBSITE / FACEBOOK SITE FIREISLAND.COM  FOR THE LEAD ON THIS)

 http://www.fireisland.com/about-fire-island/nude-beaches-on-fire-island-no-longer-clothing-optional/



Why the sudden change in policy?
This news comes at a time when Fire Island is recovering from one of the worst storms in its history.  According to the parks department the effects of Hurricane Sandy did play a role in this decision, however they are clear to state the decision is based on a number of factors, including:
  • Conflicts of use.
  • Public safety hazard due to the lack of adequate facilities for trash and human waste.
  • Lack of Dune protection: Hurricane Sandy leveled the dunes in this area, which increases the visibility of the beach from other public use areas.
  • New Habitat: The Hurricane sandy over wash areas left by the storm created added habitat for sensitive species in the area.
  • Increase in criminal activity in the designated clothing-optional areas.

FOR SALTAIRIANS, OF COURSE, THIS IS DEJA VU ALL OVER AGAIN. SALTAIRE ALWAYS BANNED  TOPLESS BATHING SUITS ON THE BOARDWALKS.

REST IN PEACE, MAYOR JOHN LUDLOW;

WE KNOW YOU ARE ROLLING OVER IN YOUR GRAVE, JOHN BITZER.

If the Feds think they can stop me from skinny-dipping in the ocean at night, let them try. But then again, I haven't done it in 25 years, and the likelyhood of me trying is close to nil.
