About the Movie

A popular summer resort, once rival to Coney Island, existed along the Rockaway shore, replete with wide beaches, a long boardwalk, honky tonk amusements, and bungalows, thousands of bungalows.Sparkling interviews bring the former bungalow colonies to life, and vintage archival film includes some Marx Brothers frolicking. But the film also tracks 100 years of Rockaway history: the story of the bungalow form; the effects of 1950s “urban renewal” on the peninsula; and, finally, the grassroots activism to preserve the remaining bungalows.

"The Bungalows of Rockaway" presents a rich, nuanced, completely absorbing view into the past and present and possible futures of this distinctive waterfront community in New York. Beautiful archival and present day footage, interviews with vivid subjects, and wonderful music to boot! Highly recommended.
