NEW YORK (AP) - Starting next month, alcohol will be banned on some federally-owned Fire Island beaches.

The ban will go into effect on Aug. 1 on federal lands in the Town of Islip between the communities of Atlantique and Corneille Estates. It’s being enacted by the Fire Island National Seashore.

The ban was prompted by alcohol-fueled parties on the beach.

Drinking is not banned on other federally-owned Fire Island National Seashore beaches.

Alcohol consumption already is banned on some Town of Islip-owned beaches.

Until recently, East Hampton was the only municipality on Long Island’s east end to allow alcohol on the beach.
