Blizzard Mars Last Day At Rockaway Sunset Diner
Sunday, February 12, was the last day for the Rockaway Sunset Diner at Beach 116 Street and Beach Channel Drive. The diner, formally the Ram’s Horn Diner, had become a Rockaway landmark over the years, one that many patronized on a regular basis. On the day before the Sunday blizzard, there were scenes of local hugging their favorite servers and lots of tears. “Where else can I go where they will serve me my coffee without my having to ask for decaf,” asked one tearful patron.
