Just before noon today we got word that there have been multiple reports of shark sightings in Jacob Riis Park in the Fort Tilden area—they must know there are no lifeguards in that area! (Over the weekend The Man was on to them after they approached Rockaway Beach.) While there have been a handful of shark sightings after the Coast Guard issued a warning about Great Whites in the area earlier this year, there have been no reports of Great Whites... but that doesn't mean you should get your banana boat out of storage.
