Remembering The Fitzgerald Hotel


Fitzgerald's Hotel on Jack Fitzgerald Way (Beach 108th Street) and Shore Front Parkway was an icon in Rockaway for the better part of the 20th century. Fitzgerald's Hotel is in the foreground with the old LILCO gas tank in the background, circa 1967. This photo and others like it can be found at www.FarRockaway.com.

Worked there from 1967-1970. Jack Fitz was the
best boss anyone could have. Now that was
Rockaway at its best. One other comment, the
picture posted makes one feel like it's 1967
all over again. Thanks!
