I’m offering fall walking tours of Rockaway Beach and, due to popular demand, Broad Channel. I will arrange private tours, if requested, and other tours of mine can be booked through the Municipal Art Society website, http://www.mas.org. Just click on the tab for “tours” to purchase a ticket.
My MAS walking tour will explore Broad Channel, starting at 2 p.m. on Sunday, October 11, 2015. There will be some special behind-the-scenes surprises on this foray, and participants will receive a free 2015 Broad Channel calendar, courtesy of Barbara Toborg of historical society. That means you’ll be all set with tide tables for the last quarter of 2015, plus a dozen vintage photos of the neighborhood.
In the works–a new, Halloween-themed, Rockaway Beach lantern tour. Truth can be creepier than fiction! Check back on this website for more details. If you’d like to join me on a private tour, send a comment to this blog, or an email to email@example.com.
Also on Sunday, October 11, the Beach 116th Partnership has rescheduled their Second Annual Fall Festival, from noon to 6 p.m. It was a huge success last year–be sure to check out the live music and beer garden, as well as the vendors. Hoping for more jerk chicken from Goody’s this year…
Rockaway Theatre Company has two choice, upcoming shows. Neil Simon’s “Plaza Suite,” directed by Peggy Page Press, runs from Friday, October 9 through Sunday, October 11. “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,” directed by Mike Wotypka, opens Friday, November 13 and closes Sunday, November 22 (the weekend before Thanksgiving–hard to believe it’s almost here!)
