Few Save Surfers, David Blaine Brave Beaches During Hurricane Bill
At Montauk, Newsday estimates 2,000 surfers defied closings for a shot at the historic waves. The beach at Robert Moses State Park was actually briefly flooded, but that didn't stop surfers either. They didn't get as much publicity as illusionist David Blaine, who tried the old invisibility trick on lifeguards at Necox Beach in Watermill in the Hamptons and didn't get away with it, and the New York Post rushed home with the news.
Meanwhile Bill has moved on and is wreaking its havoc on Nova Scotia. Local beaches are expected to open today.
