Excerpt from Chris Viaggio’s preface:

It is my hope that the enclosed collection of content, by maintaining an approachable familiarity with what is perhaps already well-known and understood about Rockaway by its residents and frequent visitors, while also presenting the complicated reality of some newly bred forces and their yet to be felt impacts, can ultimately help to properly preserve a sense of historical awareness, community investment, and inspired localism for those involved in the production of cultural activity across the peninsula.
