A Rockaway corner full of history and memories won’t be the same. The corner of Beach 102nd Street and Rockaway Beach Boulevard was the longtime home of the Irish Circle, which itself underwent various transformations. After a bankruptcy led to its closing in 2014, Kelley Brooke and Barbara Joseph acquired the property and transformed the bar/restaurant into the Community House, a beautiful establishment with an indoor/outdoor space. After a few years, the place was put up for sale and The Marcal Group came calling. The developer putting up the condos on Beach 116th Street will likely do the same here.
You can still stop by to raise a glass before the place closes for good this Saturday.BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
