Loves Wave Online

Dear Editor;

I grew up in Edgemere from 1961 to 1972, and Rockaway Beach from 1972 to 1977. While college, law school and my legal career have taken this boy out of Rockaway, no one will ever be able to take Rockaway out of this boy. You can't imagine my joy when I first found the Wave online at


It was almost like being 15 again, and playing basketball on the courts at Beach 102 street and Shore Front parkway (still there). Or being seven again and buying some candy at the Rexall Drug Store at Beach 56 street and Rockaway Beach boulevard (long gone). By bringing Rockaway onto the
Internet, you have made this former Rockaway resident a very happy man. Keep up the great work.

P.S. If any of my former classmates at P.S. 105 (class of '73), J.H.S. 180
(class of '75), Beach Channel High School (Class of '78) or SUNY-Albany
(class of '82) see this, drop me a line at

scottr35@aol.com. I would love to
catch up with you.
