Orchard Beach officially opened to the public Saturday, and the place was packed.
For many Bronx residents, visiting Orchard Beach on Memorial Day weekend is a yearly tradition.
"Generation after generation, our moms, our grandmothers," said beachgoer Manny Vasquez. "Just all the time, this is where we basically come every year."
