The boardwalk is gone. The Rockaways were devastated by Hurricane Sandy.
To help the cause, Abbie J. Zuidema is selling prints of her Rockaway Beach Map on Etsy for $35 a copy, plus $5 shipping.
100%-All proceeds from the sale of this map will go to the rebuilding of the Rockaways.
This is an archival print of the original watercolor painting of the Far Rockaway that was made for Edible Queens, Issue 12, Summer 2012.
Featured in “Best of the Boardwalk” this watercolor map showcases some of her most favorite people on the beach. Motorboat & the Big Banana, DiCosmos, Rockaway Taco, Rippers, Connolly’s, Veggie Island/And Coffee & Caracas.
“The Rockaways is special place for us. My husband Josh has been surfing out there for years. Better yet, it’s where his mom & dad fell in love. Janet & Harvey (his parents) spent summers out there with their families during its heyday. They stayed in the bungalows, hung out on the boardwalk & played on the beach.”
Printed on professional printing paper; heavy weight, archival and acid free 8.5 x 11
