About Far Rockaway Neighborhood

Neighborhood Map image

Far Rockaway is the easternmost section of the Rockaway Peninsula in Queens, extending from Beach 32nd street to the Nassau County line. With its nearby beach, Far Rockaway attracts tourists and vacationers from all over. As the neighborhood’s heyday as a resort community declined in the 1950s, the government replaced beach bungalows with year-round public housing for low-income residents. It now hosts a slow pace and a tight-knit community away from the hustle and bustle. Proximity to the ocean and low rents make this beachfront neighborhood an appealing choice, especially come summer time. The neighborhood is accessible via the A train and a ferry line that goes directly to Lower Manhattan. The neighborhood also offers convenient shopping for basic needs, and many beachfront restaurants serving seafood and tropical cocktails.
