“Directly on the Atlantic Ocean, and lapped by the placid waters of Jamaica Bay, The Rockaways lie just 20 miles from New York City. With a three-mile boardwalk along the beach shorefront, this summer destination is famed 

for its surf bathing. The Rockaways also offer a famous million-dollar amusement park called ‘Rockaway’s Playland’. This 13-mile peninsula also has many facilities for fishing in still bay waters or the deep sea.” This memorial narrative is printed on the back of this post card.
