As yours truly was fingering my way through a stack of uncategorized postcards at a show/sale recently...a Rockaway Point card of Arcadia Walk was found. When I arrived home that night, I took out my one piece map of the point of Rockaway Beach (not the split page Hagstrom Atlas which makes your eyes cross at times) and found that Arcadia Walk was shown as two and possibly three segments!

On the east side of Arcadia Walk is Beach 204 Street, on the west side at 7th, 8th, 9th and 10th Avenues, on the east side of Beach 207 Street.

The aforementioned locations are all south of Rockaway/Breezy Point Boulevard. At the east end of 7th Avenue and Beach 204 Street is Graham Place. To the south of Graham Place is the eastern end of Oceanside Avenue, where heading southward off Oceanside Avenue is another short segment of Arcadia Walk, east of Brant Walk. Graham Place continues eastward to Reid Avenue on the east side of Beach 204 Street.

My question is simply, "What part of Arcadia Walk is shown in today's Historical View, and how did splitsville (if you will) occur?
