Sigh. What to do on a rainy day in the Rockaways?
For both residents and visitors alike, The Rockaways are all about the beach. Although a rainy day in surf-town can feel like a total waste of time, The Rockaways are full of hidden gems of places to kill time until the rain dissipates.
From Rockaway Roasters (http://www.rockawayroasters.com/ ) to Cuisine by Claudette (https://www.facebook.com/CuisineByClaudette/), The Rockaways boast many cozy coffee spots, which are great places to hunker down and surf the internet until you can get back to actual surfing.
End of the A (http://www.endofthea.com/) is unique boutique-cafe that’s full of hip fashion offerings – they have a store front on Beach 129th, as well as a mobile truck that moves around the peninsula.
Craving a slice? According to our poll, Last Dragon Pizza (http://www.lastdragonpizza.com/) is the best slice in town, with Whit’s End and Elegante Pizza (http://www.elegantepizza.net/ ) taking close second.
Looking for a fun night out? Rain or shine, Bungalow Bar on Beach 92nd street (https://www.facebook.com/bungalowbarny/ ) is hands-down the best place to spend an evening. Other local favorite nightlife spots include Sayra’s Wine Bar & Bier Garden (https://www.facebook.com/Sayras-Wine-Bar-Bier-Garden-129645637243728/) , Thai Rock (https://thairock.us/ ) and Pico (http://picorbny.com/).
