Patchogue especially. Inundated with illegals taking illegal sized fish,crab, etc while illegally fishing without a license. Then leaving behind empty Tecate and Corona bottles as well as empty packs of newports and small plastic bags. Let's not forget that they also bring their entire 17 person family with them who use the beach and or dock as a bathroom/living room leaving a wake of trash and garbage behind. Disgusting. I grew up on the water in Patchogue/Davis. Complete disgrace what it's become. But hey at least we have a new 300 unit apt building going up that nobody wants.

Bob West, Patch is no longer "Hyper Local News" in our area. They dumped a super work load on our local editor (giving him a few Patch's to cover. AOL sold Patch out to another concern. Your controlled beaches are they town run? I'm not referring to the town run beaches up here.

@ Frank - thanks, yeah I understand the sad situation with with "local" Patch. We had a great editor in Long Beach who got fired altogether. So, I guess we'll just have to sift out how "local" stories really are. Yeah, beaches here are controlled access by the localities. Our beaches have been garbage-strewn in the past, when NYC used to dump their garbage off shore. So I really do understand what a horrible situation it sounds like you're in.
