Janes Walk

Led By Eric Peterson, NYC Parks

We will walk the Rockaway Boardwalk and take in the history of the beach, from resorts to bungalows to urban renewal to habitat to reinvestment. Opportunities will be provided to get your feet wet and to visit a boardwalk concession.


Walk will be on concrete boardwalk, with optional detour onto sand. Start location is accessible by A and Shuttle trains and Q52, Q53, and Q22 buses. End is accessible to A train and Q103 bus. A Parks van will be available to return participants to the start.
