Visitors Flock To Rockaway Museum For Playland Exhibit
Visitors both from Rockaway and from other parts of New York State have been coming to the Rockaway Museum in large number ever since it reopened with a “Playland Retrospective” exhibit last month. Pictured, a group of museum visitors listens as Museum President Susan Locke talks about the exhibit. The museum is located at 88-08 Rockaway Beach Boulevard in Rockaway Beach.
Barbara Gedallt, Betsy Moran and Mrs. O’Donohoue (who once owned a bar across the street from Playland), look at some of the old maps.
Five Towns resident Ira Schall looks at a model of the NC-4, the first plane to cross the Atlantic Ocean. The flight took place in 1919.
Visitors browse the many museum exhibits.
