The Rockaways, a peninsula of Long Island, is known as a “bedroom community”, meaning that it is typically residential. While the boardwalk once made the rockaways a tourist driven area, development in other areas of New York has taken away from that, and left room for many housing developments. In 2002, a “revival” was initiated in the Rockaways, and in 2008 New York City Council approved building of five new communities spanning 280 blocks, all for your renting pleasure! With all these new developments, it is surprising that The Rockaways still have some of the lowest rental rates in Queens; studio apartments show an average of $935 per month, one bedrooms for around $1,100, two bedrooms for $1,450, and three bedrooms for $1,650. Rates tend to be lower in the fall and winter.
