March is the new August!

Coney Island was fit to burst on Wednesday as hundreds of Brooklynites flocked to the beach to soak up the unseasonably warm weather.

The beaches may have been full, but some didn’t want to take their chances.

“I would go to the beach, but it could start snowing,” said Evan Jackson, 17, when we caught him in downtown Brooklyn. “I mean, it’s March!”

Yesterday’s 71-degree weather is expected to dip slightly into the 50’s today and Friday, but will warm up to the 60’s in time for a sunny weekend.
