For each neighborhood of Arverne By The Sea, there is a Homeowners’ Association that holds regular events throughout the year. These events may be based around holidays, themes, or special occasions in and around the local area, and are wonderful opportunities for residents to come together and enjoy one of the many benefits of living at Arverne By The Sea – a close-knit community. At Arverne By The Sea, we have a diverse group of residents who all share their love of the seaside lifestyle.
Along the boardwalk, Arverne By The Sea residents will find playgrounds, basketball courts and handball walls – not to mention a skatepark, surf beaches, and a roller hockey rink. It’s easy to make a day of a Rockaway Beach outing, grab a bicycle and explore the bike lanes along the boardwalk, while stopping at the many shops, food stands and restaurants along the way. If you finish exploring the shore side, there’s still the ocean! Perfect for swimming, sunbathing and just plain lounging about, Rockaway Beach is a wonderful source of entertainment and fitness; lifeguards are provided by the NYC Parks Department.
There are plenty of nightlife options in the nearby area for the adult crowd. In the summertime, nothing beats a trip to Playland Motel to enjoy live entertainment and handcrafted cocktails. Bungalow Bar is another favorite for everything from brunch to an evening of drinks and dancing with friends. Make a day of it at O’Connolly’s Bar – with their famous frozen drinks and exciting selection of classic tracks, this beach party easily goes from the early afternoon to the wee hours.
Beyond Rockaway Beach, Arverne By The Sea is just a hop, skip and a jump away from Jacob Riis Park with swimming beaches, fishing beaches, and the famous art deco bathhouse – and from Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge, a wonderful place for spotting wildlife, kayaking, bird watching, and learning more about the local environment through ranger-led tours.
