1. The Rockaways: Breezy Point

    “The Breezy Point Cooperative was organized from the banding together of the Breezy Point, Rockaway Point, and Roxbury Associations…When the three groups formed in the 1920’s, their goal was to end domination by the point’s landlord, the Rockaway Operating Company. The most critical danger for the point in present times is the strong possibility of being inundated by a superstorm in the future.”
