Your Guide to a Weekend in the Rockaways

Before summer officially winds down, take a chance to explore the Rockaways, New York City’s very own beach getaway, replete with old New York charm, New England-y style bungalows, a pristine beach and hip locales.

It wasn’t always such an easy trek to arrive there, but with improved service on the A train and a new NYCEDC-run direct ferry line, the Rockaways are the perfect weekend escape for city slickers.

The area has had a surge in investment in the years since Hurricane Sandy. The five-and-a-half-mile long boardwalk, once made of rickety wood planks, is now a sleek feat of engineering in concrete, that runs all the way from Belle Harbor to Far Rockaway.
