Beachgoers take advantage of the warm summer sun at Rockaway Beach in the Queens borough of New York on Saturday, July 2, 2011 during the Fourth of July weekend.   A sign posted by the NY City Parks Department on the boardwalk says no smoking on beach and boardwalk.  With the support of NY Mayor Michael Bloomberg the NY City Council signed into a law a ban on smoking in city parks, pedestrian plazas, and beaches. The city's ban on workplace smoking took effect six years ago. (© Frances M. Roberts)
