Summary The bungalows of Rockaway: A once popular summer resort existed along the Rockaway shore, consisting of wide beaches, a long boardwalk, honky tonk amusements, and bungalows, 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 remaining bungalows.
Everything is different now: In October, 2012, Superstorm Sandy tore into New York and woke the city up to the fragility of its shorelines. The film documents the first summer and fall after the storm as the urban beach community re-builds, re-thinks, and re-invents.
