Long Island beach in Queens borough that can be reached by subway. Popular destination for New Yorkers in mid-20th century, still pleasant to visit.

It had been a long time since my last visit. I was surprised to see the upgrades of the board walk, the cafe, sprinklers for the kids, the stage, fitness classes, concerts, of course it was the summer.

if you want easy parking and not very crowded waters come up to the 106th area, its pretty good over there, chill under the sun, a little more privacy than the other areas.

After major repairs and renovations the rockaway boardwalk is a perfect place to take a walk and enjoy the sea. New play areas and sprinklers make this a wonderful place to spend a day or afternoon
