Sunbathers and surfers flock to this residential neighborhood for oceanfront fun. The area has the only two surf beaches in the City (immortalized in the Ramones song “Rockaway Beach”), along with fishing spots and numerous playgrounds for kids. But it’s not just a summertime destination. Rockaway Beach offers plenty to do year-round: shopping at independent boutiques, checking out the art and history at Fort Tilden and snacking at a growing crop of eateries that maintain the laid-back vibe of the coastal neighborhood. NOTE: For summer 2018, a section of the beach will be closed from Beach 91st Street to Beach 102nd Street.
