Rosemary and Theodore Eicher opened their Boat, Bait & Tackle Yard at Beach 87th Street and Beach Channel Drive (BCD) in 1933. At this spot, BCD was a ‘sort of elbow’ with Rosie’s at the crux or bending point.

The next generation of the Eicher family (Cecilia & her daughter, Madelyn) carried on the business, which lasted for 80 years until Superstorm Sandy came along.

All hurricanes from 1938 on damaged Rosie’s place as well as other places east and west of Rosie’s. At present, the property has been sold and the land leveled for some future unknown sort of construction. RIP ROSIE’S!
