The life and history of Jamaica Bay will come to life in “The Jamaica Bay Story” a multimedia presentation by Rockaway historian Bernie Feuer. The Rockaway Artists Alliance will host this event at 1 p.m. Sunday, September 25th at their T-7 gallery at Fort Tilden.

A presentation which weaves together pictures and words, “The Jamaica Bay Story” will invite viewers to view historic pictures of the Bay and learn about its rich history.

The “Jamaica Bay Story” will cover the devastating plane crash that killed five Rockway residents and everybody on the aircraft after it dropped its tail structure in the Bay.

The RAA and Feuer invite all to take a walk through history and dip their toes in the past of a most beautiful and unique body of water known as Jamaica Bay.
