New York City is surrounded by water, and it only takes a subway ride to be able to sit on the sand or catch a wave.

And we all have our favorite spots. As part of our summer series on finding fun in the water, WNYC wants your help in mapping the best beaches in the city -- or a short trip away.

Pick your spot on the map, and explain what you like about it. Photos and audio welcome.

Orchard Beach, next to City Island is my favorite beach. During these hot and humid summer weekends, the Riviera of The Bronx is used by thousands of NYC sunbathers. Admission is free, and there is public transportation there. Changing areas and showers are also available. Orchard Beach is also a favorite spot for a peaceful stroll during weekdays.
