Rockaway historian, James Supple, tells us that photos of Beach 129th Street are rare and it seems that way to us! (Anybody remember Irv’s, Harbor Blues, Alan’s, Simon’s Card Shop, 29 Deli, Video Waves, The Magnet, Papa’s Pizza to name a few?!) The free-standing building in the middle of the block is now home to End of The A, but as you can see, you could get yarn and dry goods way back when. On the left of the old photo is a storefront and second-floor apartments, which is now the site of a medical building.
