Summer Days at Rockaway Beach, New York, 1950


Rockaway Beach is a neighborhood on the Rockaway Peninsula in the New York City borough of 

Queens. The neighborhood is bounded by Arverne to the east and Rockaway Park to the west. It 

is named for Rockaway Beach, which is the largest urban beach in the United States, stretching 

for miles along the Rockaway Peninsula facing the Atlantic Ocean; the beach itself is run and 

operated by the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation.

These fascinating snapshots from The Cardboard America Archive that captured people enjoying 

their summer days at Rockaway Beach, New York in 1950.
