I have officially completed my promotional tour for Images of America: Rockaway Beach, and will no longer be selling the book on my blog. The best way to purchase a copy is to get it at The Gift is Love, on Beach 116th Street (between Newport Ave. and Rock Beach Blvd). Arcadia books (the store stocks several different titles) are currently located in the sales area in the second room from the front.
The book can also be obtained at Barnes & Noble bookstores in the area. One is on Union Turnpike in Fresh Meadows, near the St. John’s University campus, and others are in Bayside and Forest Hills. They generally have a whole selection of Arcadia books. Call first before you trek there, to be sure that mine is in stock.
You can also order online from arcadiapublishing.com, which is a good idea if you are a history buff and plan to order another of their fine publications about other local towns and villages, or the history of sports, railroads, and universities. From a book on the history of basketball at the University of Pittsburgh, to the lost train lines of Queens County, Arcadia Publishing’s catalog is long and deep. It’s a veritable trove of great gifts for both men and women. Happy browsing!
