Default Jetty Walking Illegal? NY

Hopefully this is the right section, still trying to figure out the forum.

Anyway, I was fishing the Rockaway Park beach area and I was called by a Park Officer (they wear the green uniforms and drive those ATV's) who told me that walking on the jetties is illegal, and she could write me a summons for it. I didn't even think to ask her under which ordinance, but I was curious if anyone ever heard of a law against jetty walking. I know the lifeguards hate it, but I thought it was an "at your own risk" activity. Google has not been helpful in this regard, and I couldn't find any threads on it. Anyone know anything?
