I have officially completed my promotional tour for Images of America: Rockaway Beach, and am no longer selling the book on this website. The best way to purchase a signed copy is to get it at the gift shop of Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge on Cross Bay Blvd. between Broad Channel and Howard Beach. Some signed copies may also be available at The Gift is Love, on Beach 116th Street (between Newport Ave. and Rock Beach Blvd). It will also soon be carried locally at the Riis Park Bazaar.
Off the peninsula, the book can be obtained at Barnes & Noble. 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.
Or, you can order from any online retailer, but I recommend you visit my publisher’s website, arcadiapublishing.com, particularly if you are a history buff. There, you can check out all of their books about American cities, towns and villages, or the history of sports, railroads, and universities. From 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!
