The New York City Economic Development Corporation has selected the Rockaway
Waterfront Alliance to Redevelop The Former Rockaway Beach Boulevard
Firehouse at 58-03 Rockaway Beach Boulevard in Queens. The
environmental advocacy and educational organization plans to spend
about $2 million to create the Rockaway Institute for Sustainable
Environment, which will be the organization’s permanent home. The
alliance currently operates out of local schools and other community
spaces. The Rockaway Waterfront Alliance plans to build a hall for
projects and events, catering facilities, and an organic cafe in the
78-year-old former firehouse, in addition to classrooms and rental
space for community events. TRD
