The article does not say which "four" beaches the law willl be enforced at. Let's chalk up another one of life's enjoyable pleasures destroyed due to the stupidity of certian people confusing naturism with sexual behavior. Let's hope the Travasuns people can work something out with the rangers. Although it doesn't look too promising. S#@*!

I agree, not too promising. The Travarsuns and Save Lighthouse Beach had their chance to work things out with the NPS. These groups were told that last season was probationary, one last chance to clean up their act or else. The "Ambassador" program they instituted was either non existent or ineffective as the sexual shenanigans continued.
The Naturist Action Committee has obtained legal counsel and will meet with the Dept of the Interior to discuss the clothing option rights to federal lands. This is a slight glimmer of hope and if they're successful the location of the c/o beach IMO will be moved to a more remote area of Fire Island and not be re-established near the Lighthouse.

Great. The sexual shenanigan crowd coming to the more remote areas. My gut feeling is that this is final. The FINS people really don't do anything they don't want to. They'll listen, but in the end, their way. I know people on the seashore advisory board, and they have told me that in the past. Another reason that they like the breach is now no beach vehicle traffic from the east. Piping plover are more important. I hope I'm wrong but I just don't see it.

Nude Sunbathing Banned On Fire Island

I still have hope for some type of compromise

I always assumed the sex was behind the windscreens, out of sight. Am I being naive?

From my observations over the years during my summer visits some of the sex acts were thinly veiled behind the windscreens but there were several exhibitionists that didn't care who saw them. They knew there would be repercussions for their actions but again, they didn't care. If they migrate to Gunnisons they'll be told in no uncertain terms to clean up their act or they'll be reported and arrested. Unlike Lighthouse Beach, Gunnisons has lifeguards, is actively patrolled by the rangers and has an undercover surveillance unit.

Saw a brief article in today's Daily News. The Army Corps of Engineers is going to re-build the beaches at Fire Island and cover all of the costs. Maybe FINS will reconsider Lighthouse for nude use. Any news from AANR or the Naturist Society about this?

I have not heard any updates yet. I do hope that the FINS/NPS reconsider their decision but I'm afraid they will use the public safety issue to justify their actions.
