“Carmen Saldana, 17, with her 2-year-old cousin, Jasmine Padro, at #OrchardBeach in the Bronx. @angelfranco_nyt, a staff photographer for @nytimes, took their photo in May 1987. About a month earlier, @nytimes had reported on the beach. “Orchard Beach, in Pelham Bay Park, after years of vicissitudes, has become a pleasure ground of broad sands and clean waters — and alert policing.” This #nytweekender, we’re digging into our #archives to celebrate #LaborDay weekend with one last trip to the beach.” By nytimes on Instagram.
