Historical/Biographical Note

The Beachside Bungalows Preservation Association of Far Rockaway Inc. (BBPA) was formed by Betzie Parker White of 197 Beach 24th Street; Roger White (at that time was Betzie's ex-husband) of 172 Beach 24th Street; and Carole Lewis of 168-A Beach 24th Street, 174-A, 187 and189 Beach 24th Streets in September 1984. Ms. White was the head or was titled the Chairman. Ms. White established the organization as a non-profit 501 (c) 3 on December 1988.

The purpose of this organization is to improve the quality of life in Far Rockaway by embarking on neighborhood improvement, preservation, education and cultural programs, primarily from Beach 24-27th Street and to “preserve the bungalows because they’re a piece of the city’s history and a reminder of what the Rockaways was” as stated by Richard George to the New York Newsday in 1989.

Ms. White and Mr. White are deceased.

Richard George became a Board Member in 1985 and then Chairman in about 1990. He served on the Board of Director as President until 1991. In 1991 he went off the board to be the Director and work in the office funded by the New York Foundation headed by Madeline Lee. (Richard George Email January 10, 2009)

Born to Alfred and Carmela George, Mr. George grew up watching his activist mother form the 97th Place Block Association in Corona, Queens. As a youth Richard George often went to the Rockaways in the summer and grew an affinity to the area. In 1979 Richard George began his career in antique porcelain and lacquer restoration in New York City. Richard George and had an extensive clientele. He learned the importance of preserving of important artifacts from early China to Europe and the United States. In 1982 when he was looking for a summer place found the bungalows in Far Rockaway to be an ideal waterfront location in Queens and close to Manhattan. Through his preservation work Mr. George saw the importance of preserving these rare and endangered bungalow structures of Rockaway's early twentieth century heyday. In 1986 bought and moved into his own bungalow in 1986. Upon moving into the neighborhood Richard George saw the sharp contrast between the beauty of the waterfront and the surrounding degradation of the community and decided to join the BBPA to help combat many of the issues plaguing the area.

The Rockaways, with the Atlantic Ocean to the south and Jamaica Bay to the north, is an 11 mile peninsula off the southern corner of Queens. The allure of the beach and the proximity of New York City brought beachfront communities in the early twentieth century with a host of middle class neighbors into the area, primarily of Jewish and Irish heritage, making the area a seaside resort and the city’s favorite playground, as described by the New York Times (Kaplan, 1997). Many middle and working class households escaped to the Rockaways on either daytrips or took longer getaways by renting one of the many bungalows that were in the area at the time. A small number of residents owned their bungalows and were part of the year-round community (Kaplan). After World War II for a variety of reasons too numerous and complicated to delve into in this creator’s sketch much of the Rockaways stopped becoming a destination for vacationers. The Rockaways’ western enclave of Rockaway Park, Belle Harbor and Neoponsit has managed to withstand the difficulties that have plagued the rest of the Rockaways, for many reasons, including political influence and segregated housing policies (Kaplan and Stein, S. (1987). Therefore, upon speaking of the difficulties of the Rockaways, the writer of this creator’s sketch concentrates on the eastern part of the Rockaways.

The 1950’s and 1960’s saw many public housing developments built and soon Rockaway contained over fifty percent of all the housing projects in the borough (Kaplan). The arrival of nursing homes and group homes established for released mental patients created a further burden for the local economy and city services (Kaplan). The 1970’s saw the budget of New York City decrease and with it came cuts to city services, such as cuts to schools, libraries, hospitals, parks, sanitation, and the police and fire department. During this decade, poverty tripled and “while the entire city suffered and bled from these reductions, declining neighborhoods such as the Rockaways hemorrhaged” (Kaplan).

The trends evident since World War II were still being seen in the 1980’s. Richard George saw these problems and wanted to improve the quality of life for himself and the residents of the bungalows from Beach 24th – Beach 27th Street. With the help of concerned year round residents Richard George and the BBPA sought to improve the quality of life in the Rockaways. They sought to procure grants for a variety of projects, such as the acquirement of a windmill to reduce energy, summer art classes for youths and street cleanup among others. Their efforts were rewarded in 1990 when the BBPA received a $30,000 grant from the non-profit New York Foundation to set up an office, hire two staff workers and organize programs for the community, therefore establishing the BBPA as a legitimate organization.

The activities of the BBPA have included but not limited to the production of a quarterly newsletter, community clean-ups, an annual Art and Culture Street Fair, an eight week summer fine arts course for youths, emergency food programs, establishing a community garden, baseball summer league for youths, application assistance for residents for telephone, gas, electric and housing, and a block watch.

Some of his accomplishments over the years include greening programs, a new ramp for Beach 24th Street and the recent rezoning to the neighborhood character and height and scale of the bungalows. There is a renewed interest in the area from creative people in New York who do not want to travel far to enjoy the beautiful beaches and Atlantic Ocean.

As of the writing of this finding aid, the BBPA is in existence and Richard George still lives in Far Rockaway.
