Several days after Superstorm Sandy moved through the region devastating all of the coastal areas within 100 miles of where I live, I visited the Rockaway beaches closest to me: Far Rockaway and Edgemere. Edgemere is vacant land now but the boardwalk that runs through it connected Beach 9th Street in Far Rockaway all the way up to Riis Park just before Breezy point where beach streets are numbered in the 200’s. Many a Summer day when I was 13 or so, was spent riding on my bike from one end to the other. It was a wonderful life.
