Many hotels were built near the beach in Hammels but only a few photos of them have survived. On the right is the old Oceanview Hotel (1884-1931), which was the first, and it was on Beach 84th Street. On Beach 85th Street you can see (left) The East End Cottage, the Normandie and the Sachsonia Hotels.

Katie Lucev is the daughter of the late Rockaway Beach Historian, Emil R. Lucev, Sr. (1933-2018).
