Glen Cove beaches unstaffed due to lifeguard shortage
Glen Cove has a shortage of lifeguards, and until the city finds more, the two city beaches will be unstaffed at times. Darcy Belyea, parks and recreation director, urged beachgoers to “swim with care. Stay shallow. And parents should watch children even playing at the shoreline.”Morgan Memorial Park Beach and Pryibil Beach are officially closed to bathing and swimming when there are no lifeguards, but some people go in the water anyway, Belyea said.
