Emergency Evacuation Locations Announced
Community Board 14Q and the New York City Police Department have recently announced three community evacuation locations for Rockaway residents to go to in case of an emergency evacuation from the peninsula, whether natural or man-made.
Those locations were distributed earlier in the week by U.S. Post Office carriers to homes in Rockaway.
A separate reception center has been selected for various neighborhoods. They are: Brooklyn College Parade Grounds, Aqueduct Racetrack, and Belmont Racetrack.
Belle Harbor, Breezy Point, Neponsit, and Roxbury residents should go to the Brooklyn College Parade Grounds.
Broad Channel, Hammels, Rockaway Park, Seaside residents should go to Aqueduct Racetrack.
Arverne, Bayswater, Far Rockaway, and Edgemere and Somerville residents should go to Belmont Racetrack.
