SEASIDE VIEW FROM THE OCEAN 1909

Rockaway Ol`times

This colorful beauty of a postcard is showing a view of Seaside in Rockaway Beach. The lady is standing on one of the wooden poles that formed a jetty in the ocean. I remember doing this as a kid, jumping in the water with a big splash. The rock jetties were on a vertex angle and dangerous to jump off from. In the background left, is the roller coaster at Playland and on the right is Steeplechase Park.

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