Republican Mayor Michael Bloomberg (center) came to Far Rockaway on Thursday for a tour of the neighborhood and to show support for City Councilman James Sanders, Jr., a Democrat up for reelection. The mayor’s presence caused a rally-like atmosphere on Mott Avenue and Beach 20 Street, where many local politicians and activists, including State Senator Malcolm Smith (left) and Sanders himself turned out. Bloomberg was shown the Far Rockaway Shopping Center (which has lain virtually empty for many years), and then walked west on Beach 20 Street greeting storeowners and shoppers along the way.005p1_xlg.jpg
