Living in the Rockaway Park neighborhood of Queens

Rockaway Park Apartments

Rockaway Park is a neighborhood in the Southeastern section of Queens, bordering Nassau County to the east. Situated about halfway along the Rockaway Peninsula, this area is the small strip of a beachside community, sitting between Jamaica Bay and the Atlantic Ocean.


There are several single family homes mixed with the mid-rise apartment buildings near the water. With a beach within two blocks from any location in the neighborhood, it is easy to see why people are eager to settle in this quaint, beachside community.


Beachside Living in Rockaway Park

Residents of Rockaway Park apartments have access to the subway via the A train (only ten times a day, rush hour only) and the Rockaway Park Shuttle, which both terminate at the Rockaway Park - Beach 116th Street. There are a few buses that pass through the neighborhood, and the QM16 express bus that will take passengers into Manhattan within an hour, which is quicker than taking the subway. Another option for residents is the local Q35 bus that stop at the Brooklyn College - Flatbush Avenue Station, where they can transfer to the numbers 2 & 5 trains.
