In 1886, the Bayswater Yacht Club opened. It was located on Jamaica Bay in Bayswater, Far Rockaway. This postcard is dated circa 1909. The Yacht Club had a seasonal cafeteria with a short counter and chairs (no tables), a gift shop and a small community room. The annual dues were $25. The club’s demise is unclear.
