The Reverend Joseph H. May, the former pastor of the Mount Carmel Baptist Church on Beach 72 Street, is seen by many as the “father of public housing in Rockaway.” He worked for 40 years to improve the quality of life for black people in the Arverne section of Rockaway and a section of Beach Channel Drive memorializes his service to Rockaway. 21p1.jpg
