Hi Jonathan! It is not legal to swim in NYC in the off season. That said, people do still swim, usually without consequence. You’ll find people on the beach directly down from Brighton 4th St. on weekends (and smaller groups during the week). If Parks Dept. employees ask you to exit the water you should comply. But most people go in the mornings and swim without any disruption.
