What is offered here is a handy book-shelf pictorial reference to all areas of the eleven-mile Rockaway peninsula. Text and images include Far Rockaway, Edgemere, Arverne, Hammels, Holland, Seaside -- featuring Rockaways' Playland, -- Rockaway Park, Belle Harbor, Neponsit, and Breezy ... (Rockaway) Point. This is a 200 page book offering over 300 color and black and white photographs and postcards. It's a history of the Rockaways emphasizing some of the most pertinent topics touched upon in other and older tomes -- memorabilia collected and combined into this one single volume. But the memories don't stop there! This book even includes a taste of "privileged correspondence" -- fascinating letters, some signed by the former Parks Commissioner Robert Moses himself. All in all, this is an interesting, exciting and informative guide to our own history which ultimately transformed our barrier reef island over the past decades. If you ever experienced any relationship at all with any part of the Rockaways, you are strongly advised to include this work as part of your own personal library.
