The Loyard Apartment buildings, as they were once known, are located between Beach 121st and Beach 122nd Street, directly up against the boardwalk. This postcard, looking east, traveled from Far Rockaway to Kent, Washington State on a one-cent stamp. The building looks much the same today. Jokingly, the sender’s message to his brother is, “Wish you were here, not really, he he!”
Katie Lucev is the daughter of the late Rockaway Beach historian, Emil R. Lucev Sr. (1933-2018).
