- Although its reign as a summer resort destination has long since ended, this area on the south shore of Long Island in Queens still provides New Yorkers with a nice beach that is accessible by subway. A popular family destination in the '50s and '60s, it offers a glimpse into the New York City of days gone by. The boardwalk provides a good opportunity for a lovely ocean stroll. Visit the 1908 St. Rose of Lima Church, and take note of the classic architecture of the Rockaway subway stop.
