Rockaway gets the Swedish treatment


Muppets-Swedish-Chef

Last summer, Swedish journalist Marcus Joons made the rounds of the Rockaway, interviewing business owners, artists and residents. The resulting story chronicles a post-hurricane recovery in a rapidly gentrifying city.

The travelogue is entirely in Swedish (except for “NO FUCKIN’ SLICES” by guess who), and unfortunately not available online. But below is a pdf file, with some beautiful summer photographs of the community.
