Historical Views of the Rockaways

The Eastern Section of Rockaway Park From the Air, 1995
From The Rockaway Museum Commentary by Emil Lucev, Curator Dedicated To The Memory Of Leon S. Locke

With the oceanfront at Beach 116 Street at the lower left, and the Beach Club building above the empty lot thereat, these two notations should help you to orient yourself and pick out some other places that you know of.

I’ll help you out a little by telling you that Jamaica Bay is at the top with Little Egg Marsh at top left, and that’s me waving from the top of the post office building. How about the dame sunbathing in the nude on top of one of the tall apartment houses! Hey, can you find the Park Inn and the old RKO Park Movie House? Go for it!
