Partial Eclipse of the Rock


Rockaway got eclipsed on Monday. Many came out to watch this historic event unfold as 71 percent of the sun was eclipsed at the peak from the Rockaway viewpoint. Bungalow Bar, which hosted a party, was jam-packed and ran out of 500 pairs of special solar eclipse glasses shortly after the eclipse started. Others took to rooftops, decks and the beach 

with solar eclipse glasses, viewers and even homemade methods like shoeboxes and cereal boxes. For those who missed it, Gianna Capozzi got a close-up shot as seen here. The next one, when New York will get the full total solar eclipse, will be April 8, 2024.
