History

The indigenous inhabitants of the Rockaways were the Canarsie Indians, a band of Mohegan, whose name was associated with the geography. The Rockaway Peninsula was originally designated as part of the Town of Hempstead, then a part of Queens County. Far Rockaway, Hammels, and Arverne, all of Queens, tried to secede from the city several times. In 1915 and 1917, a bill approving the secession passed in the legislature but was vetoed by the New York City mayor John Purroy Mitchel. By 1898, the area was incorporated into the Greater City of New York, which included Queens. In the late 19th century, the Rockaway Association wanted to build a hotel, and bought most of Richard Cornell's old homestead property. They developed the Marine Pavilion on that site, which attracted such guests as Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Washington Irving, and the Vanderbilt family. The Marine Hotel burned to the ground in 1864, but more hotels and private residences were built in the area. A ferry powered by steam sailed from Lower Manhattan to Brooklyn. By the 1880s, the Long Island Rail Road's Rockaway Beach Branch was built to serve Far Rockaways station. The steam railroad went to Long Island City and Flatbush Terminal (now Atlantic Terminal) when it opened in the 80s, this connection stimulated population growth. It incorporated as a village on September 19 of that year. By 1888, the village was a relatively large village.

Transportation

Far Rockaway is served by the New York City Subway's IND Rockaway Line (A train), which has a terminal at Mott Avenue. The Long Island Rail Road's Far Rockaway Branch had been part of a loop with service along the existing route, continuing through the Rockaway Peninsula and crossing on a trestle across Jamaica Bay through Queens. Frequent fires and maintenance problems led the LIRR to abandon the Queens portion of the route. The city acquired this to develop the IND Rockaways Line. NICE buses operate open-door in Queens, meaning customers can ride these buses wholly within the neighborhood without going to Nassau County. The Nassau Inter-County Express operates open- door in Far Rockaways as well as in other parts of the city. The neighborhood is home to the Long Island City neighborhood of Long Island, which was once part of the borough of Queens. It is also the site of the former Long Island Railroad station, which closed in the 1970s and was replaced by a new, more modern station, the Queensboro Plaza. The Queensboro Bridge, which opened in the 1930s, is located in the neighborhood. The Rockaway peninsula was once the center of the Rockaways, but is now a peninsula of the Queens borough. The area was once known as the Rockway Peninsula, which is now known as The Rockaways. It was once a part of Queens, but was later part of Nassau, where it is now the Queens County borough.

  • Far Rockaway's population in Queens County, New York of 1,216 residents in 1930 has dropped 0,99-fold to 1,201 residents after 120 years, according to the official 2020 census.
