Yes! One of the major draws to life at Arverne By The Sea is the stretch of beach located directly across the street. As safety is always an important concern, especially for families with young children, lifeguards are provided by NYC Parks Department on all of the Rockaway beaches.
Although the beach is public, residents enjoy the feel of a private beach – thanks to the enforcement of parking restrictions for non-residents of Arverne By The Sea. Arverne By The Sea is also conveniently located right in front of the famous Rockaway beach boardwalk.
Just imagine, tourists and visitors pay thousands of dollars a week for local accommodation to enjoy the fun and sun at the Rockaways’ premier beaches – your new backyard (technically, your front yard complete with ocean views!). For the lucky residents of Arverne By The Sea, the beach is home. Did you give up surfing when you made the move to NYC? Good news for surfers – the Arverne By The Sea beach at 63rd Street is one of only two NYC surfing beaches!
The beaches along the Rockaway Peninsula, with their many jetties, also offer great fishing opportunities from April to December. Those who enjoy local fishing will land species like striped bass, bluefish and many more.
