Seeing Memorials in Rockaway

In the Fall and in the Spring each year we take a walk around Rockaway Beach. We park around Beach 96th Street and walk to the business district on Beach 116th Street and eat lunch. Today we discovered by 116th street and Jamaica Bay a memorial to the victims of September 11th. See the top photo. When we walked back to boardwalk there was another memorial for the victims of Flight 587 which crashed nearby in November 2001. This is the second photo.

WOW!! Do I remember 116th Street!!! My grandmother lived for many years in an apartment building at 125 Beach 124th Street so I spent a lot of time out there. We would walk the boardwalk to 116th street all the time. ANOTHER great memory!
