K Of C Erects Nativity At Beach 116 Street
The Knights of Columbus has erected a crèche on Parks Department land on Beach 116 Street and Rockaway Beach Boulevard. Many recent letters to The Wave have decried the fact that the local shopping street lacked a religious display for Christmas. According to a Parks Department source, the application for a permit to place the Nativity Scene was submitted to the city jointly by The Rockaway Rotary Club and City Councilman Joseph Addabbo, Jr. The Nativity will reportedly remain at the site until January 6.
