The Louis Hammel’s Hotel on Beach 85th Street started out as shown here. It was enlarged a few times, then finally became an L-shaped building that was two stories higher with the top as a mansard-type roof. A small shed was the first house of the Rockaway Beach Volunteer Fire Department, storing a ladder and bucket wagon pulled by manpower to a fire.

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