Urban Creek?

By Dan Guarino

A quiet creek, rustically winding through upstate New York?

Nope.

Until the hurricane tore down the corrugated fence which blocked it from busy Beach Channel Drive traffic between Beach 79th and 80th Streets, this small calm waterway was known to a very few.

Seen by even fewer, it is an offshoot of Barbadoes Basin, which in turn flows into Jamaica Bay.

Residents who have stopped to gaze at or photograph this hidden corner of Rockaway are hoping the fallen metal sheets cutting off the view will be replaced by a wire fence instead.
