A CASTLE, IN FAR ROCKAWAY?

My father left me some beautiful postcards, like this one of Solomon’s Castle, also known as Castle-Las. Built by Louis A. Solomon, a wealthy New York merchant/businessman, who spent summers in Far Rockaway, the “castle” was located on what is now Bayswater Park. The postcard shows the “castle” around 1910. Reports say it went on fire in 1921 and it was reported as demolished around 1925.

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