I am a lifelong Queens resident and have lived on the West End of the peninsula most of my adult life. I have always felt that the Rockaways were a hidden gem, just waiting to be discovered by a few intrepid souls. We have seen many failed attempts to bring new life to the community, but now it is finally happening. I hope to use this blog to highlight the young entrepreneurs and the stalwarts that are our lifeblood, and to occasionally take a look at civic topics as well.

To stay up-to-date with Rockaway events, follow me on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.
