From The Rockaway Museum Commentary by Emil Lucev, Curator Dedicated To The Memory Of Leon S. Locke
Gone, but not forgotten by some, is Marsell’s Tent City on the bay, at Beach 98 Street. What’s That? You say it was a bungalow colony! You’re right, but at first there were tents, and the wooden bungalows, some half and half, came later. The brochure reproduced today describes the establishment perfectly. The construction of Bay Towers replaced Marsell’s bungalows in the 1970s.
