NYC Beach Trip: Far Rockaway

  • June 12th, 2012 | Food, Travels

    Tags: , , ,

    Annabel, one of our sales associates at our Tribeca shop, recently spent a day enjoying sun, sand, and delicious tacos at Rockaway Beach with friends. Some highlights:

    A quick ride on the A train (one hour max). It’s rare that the view from the subway window is this.

    The area where the beach is “surfing only” is a nice place to set up camp because it’s quiet and empty, and only occupied by surfers floating near the shore, providing calm entertainment.

    Our SA beach blanket made the trip, too -  the perfect size to spread out and read or bask.

    The water is cold but exhilarating and refreshing

    A block from the beach, Rockaway Taco’s side patio is the perfect shaded retreat to enjoy delicious treats (we had sweet plantains, fish tacos, chorizo tacos and carne tacos). They also make amazing watermelon or pineapple mint juice.

    Next door is DiCosmos Italian ice – delicious ice cream. Veggie Island, also next door, provides perfect provisions for the journey home: fresh fruits, juices, smoothies, nuts, confectionery and even some little gifts like their homemade soaps and jelly.

    I grew up on the Rockaway Peninsula…and if you go to the beach down the block from Rockaway Taco, which is at Beach 96th St. and Rockaway Beach Blvd., you are not in Far Rockaway.
    The neighborhood is actually “Rockaway Beach”. Far Rockaway starts at Beach 32nd St.
